What should I do against harai?
by: Anonymous

I haven?t reached paired training but I read a lot, and was thinking , if my opponent was the one using this harai against me, what can I do to "counter" it, e.g. should I have a stronger grip, should I back off, and things of the sort...thanks, and sorry again..

Kendo-Guide.Com: Don?t apologize. It is a good thing to have a question :)

Now if you get into a pair work and do jigeiko, you will have to study what you should do against such techniques.

There are no particular answers to your question. But you do not want to make your grip tighter. It only makes you vulnerable to your opponent?s technique.

You can take a little step back or you can take a little step in. You can move your shinai and execute a counter harai techniques.

Try what you can do against such techniques. Trial and error is the only answer ;)

Is it avoidable?
by: Anonymous

Thanks for the explanation.
This might sound so beginner-like, sorry, but is it avoidable? And how can one train to lessen its effect at least? Thanks again.

Kendo-Guide.Com: Any question is welcome! But can you be more specific? What do you want to avoid? What effect do you want to lessen?
