Increase Fumikomi Power

by Gabriel Paredes

I want to know how to improve my push off in Kendo. I mean the impulse of the fumikomi.

Answer: To increase the power/impulse of fumikomi, you need to work on not only the kick of your left foot but also the pulling-up motion by your right foot.

Many people tend to use the right foot only to make a huge bang noise. But the right foot is very important to increase the force created by the kick of the left foot. There are a few articles dedicated to fumikomi:

After reading the articles and have more questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Hope these help.
