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.

    物腰の柔らかい方で丁寧に指導して頂きました。
    腕力体力には自信がないのですが上手く斬ることが出来ました。
    駅から徒歩15分とありますが、もう少し近いように感じます。
    場所も分かりやすい所にあり良かったです。

    Guest user勉強になりました。

    現在68歳、4年前から居合を始め全剣連の3段です。まだまだ好奇心旺盛で、かねがね真剣での試し切りに興味を持っていましたが、ようやく実現しました。巻藁を実際に切る事で居合いでは絶対にわからない刃筋の立て方を学ぶ事が出来ました。住田師範が「切り口は嘘をつかない」と仰っていましたが、まさにそのとうりでした。この経験を居合の方にも生かしたいと思っています。今日は小生一人の参加にも関わらず親切にご指導頂き有り難う御座いました。また、機会をみて伺いたいと思っております。

    Guest user貴重な体験でした!

    平日夜に一人で参加しました!

    内容は、刀剣の基礎知識を学んだ後、素振りと試し切りを行うものです。

    刀の振り方は特に丁寧に教えていただけるので、武道経験が全く無かった私でも巻畳を切ることが出来ました!

    所要時間もちょうど良く、無理なく体験できるため、友人や家族で参加するにも適していると思いました。

    また参加したいと思います!
