今行きたいなー、武道館に

OMG don’t evennnnnn
So excited.

Open discussion time!

You perform a cut, and you follow through with zanshin. However, you turn around with one hand on the shinai raised above your head in case your opponent is coming at you.

Good or bad? I have been mulling this one over for a few days. It would be interesting to hear from a shinpan’s perspective.

I assume that if the cut is worthy of ippon, then the flags should be raised by the time your zanshin is finished, but still. I’m a bit hmmm on this one.

Opinions?

Okay. Sorry for the delay but I needed to write a message to a friend.

This post is dedicated to all the people in the Kendo tag, who actually take Kendo and want to learn about it instead of those other people who just keeping talking about anime and some guy named “kendall,” and thinkmooinc because she asked.
