s o r e...

Kendo practice was pretty killer tonight. It probably didn't help that I haven't been to practice these past two weeks, but still... there some seriously tough conditioning drills tonight. Right after warm-ups, sensei had us do three sets of this new 100-strike sho-men-uchi (strike to head) drill... swinging around a sword would seem pretty easy, but after doing it 300 times at a controlled, brisk pace... I thought my arms were gonna fall off. Of course, there was also the requisite attack practice drill, some waza (technique) practice, and everyone's favorite, jigeiko (open sparring). The 300 strike drill had me pretty winded for the whole practice, so my form was horrendous the rest of the night. After two and half hours of practice, my body was singing hallelujah when 9:30 rolled around.

Random kendo picture I bit off another site, heh:

The Renton Taikai (tournament) is rolling around, but I'm not going to be able to go... the Fall Youth Retreat is that same weekend, poop. I hate it when things are double booked. =(
