Andrew: awesome stuff, keep it up. I have just started Kendo (well, just started before heading to work, I'll be back in again once I get back to the states). Its great, exactly what I was looking for. I'm not very far into it yet, but I'm really looking forward to progressing.
I'm planning on getting some boxer's wraps. Will it matter what brand I get, and if yes, what brand should I get?
I'm planning on getting some boxer's wraps. Will it matter what brand I get, and if yes, what brand should I get?Brand shouldn't really matter, but there are a few different basic kinds. There's the regular kind, that usually have a loop to go over your thumb, and there's the Mexican-style gauze wraps, and there are also some wrap gloves that you just slip on. The wrap gloves kinda suck, but as for the real wraps, I couldn't really tell you the difference in effectiveness. I think it mostly comes down to personal preference. Though if you're wrapping yourself, the gauze wraps are a bigger pain in the ass.
Tonight, a black belt kicked my ass all over the mat with his eyes closed.
Literally with his eyes closed. Now, this is judo, where you've got grips on each other's gi, so it's not as crazy as it would be in a striking art. But still. He threw me hard about 10 times, and I never got one.
So, kendo is awesome! I already blew a blister on my left foot... ouch. I'm loving it though, I'm really glad I dediced to do it.
Guess who kicks ass at three club combat? ME! Guess who won the Berlin 2011 Fight Night? Watch to find out...
Also way too many of those kicks ended with him on the ground. Not really an advantageous position.
