Kendo training menu
I would like to ask about your training schedule.
In training, how long do you usually spend for warm-up? Suburi? Basic techniques? What is always included in every training? What is the order of techniques and exercises during training, etc.?
For example, in our dojo we have 2-hours trainings. Our warming-up is about 15-20 minutes; some stretching exercises, jumping, flexibility exercise, warming-up joints and muscles.
Then about 25-30 minutes we do suburi. After that we do men uchi, do uchi, kote uchi, kirikaeshi without bogu for about 20 minutes.
Then we put our bogu on and for about 20-25 minutes we do all those techniques in bogu. During that period of time we may learn something new or train some advanced technique. After that we usually have uchi (komi) geiko, kakari geiko or/and jigeiko.Answer:
It looks good to me. I have one suggestion, though. Go to your dōjō
a bit early and spend some time for warm-up. You will have more time for actual kendō
I tend to spend too much time on the very basics.
