Hanbō Okuden, Happō Giri, Sōjutsu Gokui Gata & Tachi Otoshi

Bujinkan Samurai Dublin
初見先生 – 甲冑剣法

Class began with a final review of the three kata of the Kukishinden Hanbō Okuden, focusing on the timing and distancing, upper body alignment and locations of each strike. After this we reviewed Happō Giri and Sayugyaku, working through the evasion, countercut, points of attack and logic behind the placement and order of the cuts.

After a quick break we moved onto Kage Chō and Mitsudama, looking at the more unorthodox strikes used, and the use of the body to both power the strike and recover the weapon in a speedy fashion. Lastly we concluded with Tachi Otoshi, the last kata of the Jōjutsu, working on the correct timing for slipping Aite’s cut, drawing out their structure with the tsuki, before using the body to drive the subsequent strikes.

“In budō,if you are always chasing after the new you will loose sight of its important secrets.” – Hatsumi Sensei
