Description
What is it like to cut with a real sword, and how can test cutting improve my study? This class will focus on modern test cutting, as practiced in Japanese sword arts, and how one can adapt it for use in HMA studies. A variety of live weapons, eastern and western, will be available for demonstration. Targets are limited, and a fee of $10 for two targets is requested of attendees. Participants may bring their own live, sharp blades, but they must be inspected by the instructor prior to use. The instructor reserves the right to refuse anyone if they do not believe that they are safe. Please sign up ahead of time to ensure there is adequate time to prepare mats for cutting.
