Raavan One Piece - Chapter 9
Chapter 9 New Way to Practice
The next day, when the scent of food from the villagers house drifted to the beach, Raavan’s nose moved slowly and his eyes slowly opened. He looked at the rising sun in the distance and exhaled a long breath.
“Yesterday, I actually fell asleep, really …” Raavan twisted his neck, got up and moved a little stiff body.
Raavan jumped off the stone, picked up the “weight” placed on the side of the stone, and quickly ran around the coastline of Village. During this period, he encountered several villagers who had gone out fishing early, and there was actually the one who helped him out yesterday.
Raavan stopped and ran to the big man who was carrying two big bamboo basket fishes without sweating. He greeted with a smile and greeted his uncle’s companions before running again in the uncle’s laughter.
When Raavan finished his morning training, it was almost nine o’clock. He dropped the weight and came to the dojo.
The dojo was as crowded as yesterday, but unlike yesterday, when Raavan came here today, someone actually offered him a place closer to Koushirou.
Raavan bowed to Koushirou, who was sitting in the middle of the dojo, and sat down politely.
Yesterday, after listening to Koushirou’s lecture for a period of time, he only think about dodging moves, or countering the sword moves. And he found best method is to increase his moving strength, or make his body like Kaido. Raavan wanted to see if there would be any experience value improvement today.
Koushirou looked at the students who came to the class, gently raised his glasses, squinted his eyes and said, “Today we will explain the basics of kendo, that is, the two basic moves of up and down chopping.
Let’s first talk about ups and downs. There are four steps to ups and downs.
The first step requires us to start from the middle position, hold the knife with both hands, and lift it upright from the bottom up.
The second step, keeping the posture of the first step to step forward, Send your body forward. At this time, the raised knife can not stand still, while straightening both arms forward and downward straight down.
In the third step, the splitting knife edge stopped about three centimeters from the ground, and at this time, the left foot moved closer to the right heel. Place your left arm against your abdomen and your right hand forward.
The fourth and final step is to return the knife to the middle position.
Regarding the upper and lower splits, many students present will feel simple, but in fact, your movements have many deviations, such as lifting a knife to a split knife, the knife must move on the center line of the body.
Moreover, your shoulders are too stiff. Remember, you must have the strength of your whole body to reach the tip of the knife, so that the split will have power!
Finally, it is also the mistake you make the most. When the knife is lifted up, be careful not to leave your feet off the ground!
Alright, any classmates come up to demonstrate the action of splitting up and down?
Koushirou’s words fell, and the students around him began to learn to silence the ostrich.
They have been learning basic movements for a long time, but sometimes they make the low-level mistakes that Koushirou said.
If Koushirou didn’t specifically point out their mistakes in motion, maybe the people playing the demonstration will scramble, but now … who comes on the field, who is ashamed.
“Raavan, why don’t you try it?” Koushirou glanced at, knowing that these cowardly cowards, like turtles, were ridiculed for fear of wrong actions and being mocked. He didn’t care. He taught the villagers’ sword skills here, too. Just teach them some self-defense tactics, do not expect them to have any great success.
However, Raavan, who gave him a strong impact yesterday at the training ground, made him a little bit of anticipation.
Although he don’t want to follow swordsmanship path, and just come here to learn counter attack method. But counter attack can only be done by a person who know swordsmanship, or have greater speed.
Raavan saw Koushirou named himself again, he slowly got up and replied: “Yes, teacher.”
Raavan walked to the side of the bamboo basket where the bamboo sword was placed, picked a fair bamboo sword, returned to Koushirou, and under the attention of many colleagues, he slowly and standardly made a set of up and down moves.
“Very good, the movements are very beautiful and powerful.” Koushirou took the lead to compliment him, and then he gently applauded, and the teachers gave such a high evaluation, and the other students were just awake and busy clapping and praising.
“Thank you teacher for your praise.” Raavan took the sword and saluted, looking at the sword in his hand, and felt it was too light. He found that his strength is increasing at a very fast speed. He must practicing Thai Boxing, so he control this strength properly. Otherwise, extra strength will not provide him much benefit.
He couldn’t lift the 600 kilogram dumbbells yesterday, he felt Now, it should be fine.
Koushirouo smiled, pressed his hands, pressed down the students’ voices, and smiled, “How about the next oblique slash, how can you explain and demonstrate?”
Raavan nodded without rejection. In fact, it was easier to find his flaws and problems when he explained.
As a result, Raavan sat cross-legged next to Koushirou and began to rush.
“There are also four steps to the diagonal split…”
“The first step is to raise the knife from the middle …”
“The second step is to raise the knife to the fixed point, deviate 45 degrees from the center line of the head, and slash from the top right to the left …”
“The fourth step……”
Soon after concluding all the movements, Raavan got up, picked up the bamboo sword aside, and demonstrated the standard action of a diagonal slam again.
Everyone applauds again.
