Is double-handed force increased if mastered in single-handed form?

by Iain Jarvis
(Katy, Texas, United States)

I have thought if someone had trained himself using a shinai in their main hand (or writing hand) and they trained their other hand for defence (using Aikido). That their power would double if that person was to use both hands in Kendo. Is that correct?


Answer: Thank you for your question.

I am not too sure what you want to know.  

Since I have never trained aikido myself, I don’t know how you can defend yourself with one hand while you have a sword in the other hand.  So I don’t really know how I should answer to your question.
