Kendo, Fighting Jodan

To continue a trend of learning about Jodan no Kamae (Kendo Jodan no kamae study, and kiwada Sensei on Jodan) , here are two videos from the 60th All Japan Kendo Championship in 2012 at the Nippon BUDOKAN.

Both featuring Nakama, a Jodan player from Okinawa.

In these videos you can see one player being defeated and the other succeeding against Nakama. Both player being great competitors.

Here you can compare two different approaches and study what good and not so good elements each kenshi had.
