Episode 141: How to Deal with Those Who Strike Super Hard

In this podcast, I want to share my thoughts on how to deal with those who strike super hard. Recently one of the members here posted some pictures of her fist after training. It was all swollen and purple. People shouldn’t strike kote that hard, and they shouldn’t hit the fist!

People shouldn’t hurt others on purpose. That is just wrong.

Episode 140: How Do You Know When To Strike?

This episode is an answer to a great question by a long-time member, Ming. his question was “Must I strike my opponent as soon as he (she) crosses my striking distance, even when he(she) has not yet moved his(her) kensaki off the center? Because there is no opening, even when my opponent has crossed into my striking distance. “
Hope you enjoy this!
