I've only started kendo a month ago. Can you tell me how to relax more?

Answer: Thank you for your question, Peter. This is one of the common questions in kendo. Have you read this article, Mokusō Breathing: Quiet but Powerful?

Basically, you are tense because you think you MUST fight. Funny enough, everyone gets tense once they have some kind of a weapon. Not only you.

So you need to learn how to breathe and how to relax in stressful situations such as fighting.

Here are some videos I created how to relax in kendo and hopefully they are helpful for you.
