Yesterday we had aikiken class, and we were shown a few basic techniques. Said moves were then practised slowly in pairs to improve accuracy, timing, the sense of touch….
However, sometime in the middle of class Sensei turned it up a notch and decided to show us how it’s actually supposed to be done.
This was the result… just above where the right hand is suppose to be.
FYI: That’s a new 1 cm thick tsuba (hand guard)….
