Ippon Me Mae - 268
Here's my third update on the continuation of my 1000 rep Iaido challenge for Ippon-me mae. I am now at 268 reps with the katana.
The following video shows a comparison of rep 130 against rep 268. As you will see in the video my performance has great improved.
Thanks to Steve for sending me a private video that gave me lots of pointers on my performance. He puts out some great videos on swordsmanship.

My biggest problem is that Steve gave me so many pointers that I am over thinking my performance so I have spend a lot of time working on some of the parts especially the draw and resheathing.
Some ask me what style I am training. Great question! When I started this challenge I picked a video that I was attempting to replicate.
Here's the link to that video.
