Do you always wear hakama and keikogi for solo practice?
How about the bogu? Do you put it on even when there is no one else?
Answer: It is always a good idea to wear keikogi and hakama when you train. I allow beginners to train without keikogi and hakama for a while but I tell them to get keikogi and hakama if they are serious about doing kendo.
Bogu is not necessary if you do not have anyone who strikes you. (my personal opinion)
Both are fabulous and strong kendoists of the era. Their kendo is categorized as hardness or gou. Juu is softness. Obviously their kendo is not soft :) Usually gou and gou fight, the fight ends up wit…
