Description
"This will be a very basic class, one hour, on how to move with and use the Japanese sword. We will go over basics of grip and movement and discuss specifics of what we know regarding pre-Edo period technique. Participants should bring a training simulator. Wooden bokuto or bokken are preferred. SCA C&T katana or longsword simulators may also work. This will take you through some partnered drills, and sword on sword contact is expected. Some loaners may be available on a very limited bases--first come, first served."
