Old saying..
by: RF


When you win a great victory it's time to tighten your himo (armor strings).

Can you repeat your feat?  If not, time to practice with that in mind.

Kendo-Guide.Com: Thanks for your post. The old saying you introduce here is “Katte Kabuto no O wo Shimeyo”. And there is another saying there too.

Adrenaline Rush?
by: Santiago B Tejada

Were your strikes perfect and with no mistakes? What about your foot work? Did you beat yourself after all? Are you a better person now? That is what Kendo is also about!

Kendo-Guide.Com: Thanks for your comment. So true.

Let's take a moment. Probably the guy who asked this question may be a teenager or in his early 20s. These people are physically active and capable of striking fast and a lot.

They should know what kendo is all about but they also should experience and extend their physical potentials. And when they fight 60 or 70 year old 7th dan or 8th dan sensei, they will realize there is something more than physical abilities needed in kendo.

Nothing wrong with questioning what is going on when you happen to beat higher grade holders or get beaten by lower grade holders.

But bragging about how well they did or making excuses when they lost is not really kendo attitude. In such case, they should go back to the concept and purposes of kendo.
