This week focuses more on the traditional techniques of tachi dori aka one with sword and one empty handed. In day 1 we are rushing in to stop the attack early. This technique of rushing in early works for bats as well as swords. The attacker must “load up” their swing in order to do any sort of damage, this is where we seize our opportunity. These are fun to train for due to the difference in timing. Be well, friends and see you soon!
