Whacky Smacks

Did some kendo for the first time in a while. We did our regular drills (suburi, targetting, kiri kaeshi) and then took turns doing _ with everyone in class.

A few notes :
* Relax shoulders. Yeah, been hearing this one forever.
* Do combos rather than single strikes. The first one will probably be blocked but it can leave them open for a followup.
* Tai atari should be at waist level not high up, to prevent someone from overpowering or from slipping in a do strike.
