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.
