Working on my Lift

Been suffering with a streaming cold this week which ruined my planned practice. Managed one session on Thursday though.

O'Sullivan sensei commented that I need to quicken my sword lift to improve my total cut speed. I'm ok cutting down but its the lifting part which is messing things up.

I've been practicing lifting as fast as possible at home using a suburiko (short shinai). I lift stright up and push with my left foot, half a cut. Rinse and repeat.
