P.P.S

Also, a great excercise I find which is rather hypnotic but is great for instinctive reactions is the one where you stand facing someone (armed with bokkens) and as you cut they do a shomen-uchi movement (without moving their feet) and then cut you, and then you do shomen-uchi etc. it can get quite fast and the body co-ordination can get so good that you could literally have an in-depth conversation without having to interupt your movement. In fact it soon becomes hard to stop.
