How to use your ki to create a shikai on your opponent.

by Jeong

Exactly, how would you create a shikai on your opponent with your ki? I heard that you use your spirit to overwhelm them, but exactly how do you do that?

Kendo-Guide.Com: Very good question. You will hate my answer though.

Answer: That is for you to find out.

If we know exactly how we do it, we don’t have to do kendo. :)

Have you felt pressure from a sensei before? Sensei like 6th dan above. If you have never felt pressure from those high ranks, you probably have not yet reached the level, which you are experienced and trained enough to feel other’s strength.

We often say, beginners are the strongest opponents. That is because they do not feel pressure so they don’t care what would happen to them and just come forwards and strike. That is a good thing, by the way. Beginners should strike without thinking too much.

You have to learn how to put pressure on your opponent by using your shinai and techniques first.

Training after training for years can only gives you the answer to your question.

Hope this helps.
