Thanks for answering my first question. Currently, I'm trying to practice avoiding bending my left arm most of the time when I do a do strike. My sensei a while ago says not to do it similarly like a baseball swing.
I understand what he's trying to explain, but I feel that I was able to do it when I practice by myself. It's when I train with others that I sometimes see this, coupled with the problem of the right distance.
I plan to buy a suburi training tool to practice my swings to make sure they're always straight.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Answer: Sorry about my late reply. I know you posted twice.
I am not too sure how you can keep your left art straight when striking the dō . If you can send me a video, it is much easier for me to understand what you are talking about.
Now about the bending the left elbow. I have two videos about the elbows. So please watch them and tell me what you think.
