I agree with the other comments and also would add that the "tsuka" of a shira saya is not correctly shaped to promote proper gripping.

Kendo-Guide.Com:  I am not a sword expert so I have not actually touched many shira-saya so I don?t know if the tsuka part of all the shira-saya are not correctly shaped or not. But through my experience, they felt different from the tsuka of the ordinary sword.

For a beginner doing hayasuburi I think it is much more important to focus on the footwork than to worry about the swinging. Not that the swing isn't important; but footwork is much more so.

Kendo-Guide.Com: Yup. Footwork is the one we really should work on especially at the beginning.
