Plan description

This experience is specialized for trial cutting. There are only three types of trial slashes (sword slash, reverse slash, horizontal slash). There are 6 types even if you consider how to cut from the opposite direction. Various techniques are composed of this combination of cutting methods. Among them, we will challenge the trial cutting of three kinds of thickness with the most basic starboard cutting. If you can cut well, you can brag to your friends. Don't worry if you fail. Japanese swords are not as easy as watching them on TV and movies. When you cut well, you will feel like a samurai!

After changing into training clothes, we will give a lecture on Japanese swords.

When you arrive at the dojo, change into training clothes. Samurai was wearing a hakama at that time. Wear the hakama during training. The staff will help you change your clothes. After that, you will learn the history of Japanese swords and the basics of how to make them using materials, and actually disassemble the swords to deepen your understanding.

Practice how to swing a trial sword using a simulated sword

First of all, I will make a swing about the upper slash, the middle slash, and the lower slash. Next, practice the practice of right-handed slashing, which is actually a trial slashing. As for all slashes, the blade line (the sword's slash angle) is important. If you can cut it well, you can cut it without any resistance, but if the angle is even a little bad, you can not cut it, or even if you cut it, there is a big impact on your hand. Therefore, you will learn the blade line before actually cutting.

Challenge 3 different thickness trial slashes

First, try the blade line with half a roll (half of one tatami mat). Next, check the blade line with a thicker roll (1 tatami mat). Finally, we will challenge thick sushi rolls (2 tatami mats) or side by side (2 tatami mats). You can choose either one at the dojo. It is very difficult for an inexperienced person to cut thick sushi or side by side, but I will teach you firmly. You can cut if the blade lines are correct. Please experience the unique sword cutting method of Japanese swords.
