Re: Kesa giri video

Thanks Szczepan. Have only ever tried tameshigiri once - was a lot of fun! Will consider the wrist thing.

I am working on the whole body, but find it needs to be quite subtle and extremely well coordinated. Most people I work with tend to hear "use the hips" and then start wiggling them but not coordinated with their arms! A common mistake is to finish the hip movement before the arms/sword have finished their movement.
