Control mind to get the first hit
Today when we started our training, our teachers told us to prepare to learn.
I think that this will be continued through our promotions in Kendo.
We have to control our minds to get the first hit(swing).
You do not need to force yourself to hit before your opponent.
You need to hit with your mind believing that every trick is the first trick.
(Be of the mind that the first is the first, second or third trick.)
It is so difficult to not lose our focus and to get that first trick.
Let's keep our minds focused and train as harad as we can.
