I randomly stumbled upon your site and found that (I'm assuming), you've visited Miami shidogakkuin, right? Considering this was done over a year ago, I figure you've decided you're going to practice or not.
In any case, you've probably already discovered that there wouldn't be any reason for the person on the left side of the picture to block the other person. The person on the right has already missed by his own personal flaw. If the person on the left had not blocked, the right person would not have gained a point from shinpan anyway. (Also, the right person is in the air, it seems and is not using fumikomi; a basic of kendo footwork.)
I am not speaking as a superior at all, I just wish to provide you with constructive criticism.
Have you heard of Nabeshima Cup? I will be attending this year! I am very excited~
It's just a painting. Of course the picture isn't kendo-perfect; they're using swords! Hahaha.
I've been with Shidogakuin Miami for 14 months now. Do you practice with Orlando Kendo Kai? (or Club; whatever it is now.) I just went to the Florida Taikai in Titusville at the end of February. Good luck at the Nabeshima cup.
Well, I practiced with OKK for 2 years, but OKK has been disbanded as of a year or so ago because of some management issues. Prior to that, I practiced at Sakuragaoka gakko kendobu in Yokohama, Yamato-shi, Japan for about 13 years. Anyway, since last year, I've been practicing on my own and, occasionally with Renshinkan in Satellite Beach (with one of my kouhai, Phil, the one who organized the Florida taikai this year). Hopefully, I will do keiko with you sometime!
I realize this piece is just a work of art. A very good one at that. ^^.
