How Do Yoko Giri

Did some tamishigiri in sword class last night. Cut 5 makiwara, I seem to do better the less I think about it. I really need my own shinken so I can get in the backyard and do some cutting on my own time. I'll never get anywhere cutting 4 or 5 every 3 months.

Points to remember :

* The lower the target, the sharper the cutting angle
* Follow through, I try to stop too early and lose power before I'm done cutting
