Kendo Waza Keiko, Small Kote and Dou.

Here is a video of  part of a kendo class where the kenshi are practicing small kote and Dou.

Some interesting things to point out in this video:

  •  Focus  on seme before the attack.
  • Zanshin after the attack.
  • Posture.
  • Intensity after the Kote hit (not stopping right after the hit).
