Alright ladies and gents - this Saturday, we had the Autumn sword seminar which also involved our first cuts. This movie here, depicts my very first cut, using an extremely sharp and dangerous shinken (true sword). Needless to say, the sensation was outworldly... but cutting.. well, it's a difficult business. I managed 2 clean ones out of 6 smile.gif

That's awesome Cosmin. biggrin.gif Funny, I speak Japanese (fluently) and shinken means 'real sword'. Looks like you had fun, now you just need some samurai battle music in the background laugh.gif

Cool Start , Cosmin !

When i look at this vid it feels a bit strange around my neck huh.gif - WHY ?


One Question about breathing !

Why did you do not the Kiaaaaay at the moment when you let your energy out on the point ?

This would , as i mean , give a much greater energy effect . But thats from the view of Karate i am not an expert into Swordart !

Dieter, in classical swordsmanship, the kiai is not always present out of what I know - I've noticed it in the May seminar, being done by the great master Takara, but neither Sensei nor the other more advanced of my colleagues did not utter the kiai when cutting.

You are far too kind Ben smile.gif I am no master, only a humble student

Thank you , Cosmin , for the answer !

It is very interesting , so i gonna check that out a bit more around my place .

What could be on first view , it might not be allowed to teach this technic`s full minded to destroy something or one .

So Samurai Codex !?

Breathing sure is a main point by using his body as a weapon breathing out when is a movement to absorb or lead energy from/to a point , the so called Kiai actually is concentrated Energy outlet with full mind to destroy , so much more effektively to the point.


It is Great that you are into material art and i wish you a successful Path !

Dieter
