Practice: finding the centre point

For learning and practising SHODO,

being able to see the “CHUSHIN” – the middle point becomes quite essential.

The way of spacing and placing the characters does not sound so complicated – but

it takes many on going years to master the art of balancing,

the art of seeing the middle and the aesthetic of space.

Here I introduce the best way to train our eyes and also practice the sense of space.

This can be used for two and four character-texts.

You can only lightly fold the paper, it does not need to be too exact or tight.

I would suggest to fold the paper like below even from the warm-up practice.
