Katana Basics Class

masamune01We are pleased to announce a 3 session beginner class (February on the basic handling, cutting and moving with a katana.

Sessions will be on Tuesdays, February 11th, 18th and 25th, 2014.  From 7:00pm to 8:30pm

  • Strength and coordination drills for sword work.
  • Proper movement technique for cutting.
  • The difference between cutting practice (tameshigiri) and fighting (budo).
  • Sword fighting scenarios (waza) for beginning budo.  This is not to be confused with sparring.  A waza is a non-competitive 2 person training form that has been handed down through our martial tradition.
  • We will supply the opportunity to try tameshigiri using live blades on paper sheet targets.

Students will be expected to practice skills for a minimum of 20 minutes each day between class sessions.

Cost is $10 per session.  Students will need to purchase a boken (practice sword) before the first session.
