Just practicing isn’t enough, you also have to run diagnostics every now and then, so to speak. Recently I took some time to check my cutting mechanics on soaked tatami mats.
Of course there are always things to work on, and in this case it’s my Zwerchhau (thwarting cut/hew) in particular that still has sketchy edge alignment. This strike is one of the Master Cuts in the German longsword tradition, as shown in the Medieval and Renaissance manuals. A very effective counter technique when done right.
