Bye bye mountains!

We have spent almost one year in the French Alps, living in a beautiful chalet, surrounded by sheeps, cows, horses and strange insects. It was a very inspiring place for a productive year. 
Tomorrow, early in the morning, we will leave the mountains in search for a new home.

Last Saturday, we went one last time to the lake of Annecy where we swam and sketched those two beautiful castles.

Women should NOT be forced to feed their babies in a bathroom, all because we live in a misogynistic, porn-warped society that’s been brainwashed to believe that female breasts used for anything other than male pleasure is “indecent”. Support public breast feeding and end the porn culture.

One of my biggest challenges in kendo is being paired up with a taller opponent. I am REALLY short and I could never perform a proper men-uchi on a taller opponent. The best I can do is aim for the kote or the dou. Every time.

So I am wondering — to all petite kendoists out…

Lucky for you I have a relevant story.
My Senpai/Kendo sister continuously tells us this story because it doesn’t matter how short or tall you are, it’s the spirit that counts.

She’s actually about 5’1” or 5’2”? I don’t really know. I know that she’s shorter than me. Anyway, I forget where she was but she somehow ended up fighting a guy that was 6’9”. Yeah, that’s monstrous in her situation. BUT! My Senpai is the kind of person who faces challenges head on. When she saw how tall this guy was, her mission was to get his men.

Long story short, she got one. I wasn’t there when she got it but she says that her shinai was practically vertical when she did hit it.

Another lesson?
Oh well, she didn’t win against that guy but the guy did win by hitting her do.

So no, height does not matter.

Tips?
I don’t quite have tips for you as I was not there to witness the event, nor have I ever had quite a situation. The tallest person I fought was about 6’2”. I have a picture of me hitting her men (at the 14th World Kendo Championships). I’m in mid air and my shinai is actually, visibly hitting her men. FYI, I’m just under 5’4”.
You have to just have that will and confidence that you’re going to win. You don’t have to try and challenge yourself to hit those far-reaching points, but hit things that you’re comfortable with. If you’re comfortable hitting men, why not hit it? To tell you the truth, I’m pretty sure my Senpai’s situation went something like this:
She knew that she wanted to hit his men. After a few tries, I’m sure he realized that she was going to do everything in her power to get a men off of him because wouldn’t that be amazing for her and embarrassing for him? So he did the obvious move, which was kaeshi do.
You’ve gotta be ready for everything. I’m sure the guy would’ve preferred to get a men off of her because that’s the easiest hit, but since they both knew that men would’ve been the target, she would’ve blocked every single one, right?
In your case, just because you’re smaller/shorter, doesn’t mean you can’t hit men. With that said, that doesn’t mean that you should be stubborn and just try to hit men because that would be awesome. Always fight smart and fight your fight.

Wow! You are quite an inspiration! Thank you, sily52, for sharing your story! I love kaeshi do! But I tend to not overuse it or else everyone will know that’s what I’m aiming for. Thank you for your words of wisdom too. Fighting smart —  think strategy. One can’t be too single-minded to one’s disadvantage.
