Kevin and I want to practice classical japanese swordsmanship with you guys. We're gonna cover the basics and a ton of single and partnered drills for the katana that may possibly help keep you skills sharp. Kevin and I will be heading it up with me focusing on proper form, technique and strategy, and Kevin focusing on timing, distancing, and application. Please don't misunderstand, however: Kevin and I don't mean to change anyone's way of fighting. Everyone has their own grace. I simply figure, if you enjoy the battles with satsu, then you obviously have an interest in ancient combat styles of the far east. We're not shaping you guys, we're imparting with you our knowledge of the japanese fighting arts and philosophy as thanks for allowing us to play with you guys.

Suggested items: Bokken (this is a wooden sword. they are usually between 5-12 dollars at fye, or at Zen Garden in the Wellington Mall. there is also a martial arts store that has some good quality bokkens for a good price. ask me about it)

Drawing sword and a belt to wear it in (karate belts work fine. also any sword you wish to use as a drawing sword must be inspected by me for safety.)

Patience (please remember, some of you are learning something completely knew. while we hope the experience is enlightening, it may at times be frustrating. Please, don't let it hamper your fun.)


I still haven't decided whether to do this at freedom park or at okeeheelee. I say we take a vote as to the location as well as the day. My motions are for either Friday of this week from 4:00 ish to 7:00 ish or Saturday from 4:00 ish to 7:00 ish. Those two days are best for Kevin and I. my contact info is as follows: Myspace.com/drtino Facebook: Tino Gonzalez Cell: 561-253-5523 Email: Drtino555@yahoo.com


Ps: remember that unlike with satsu, the eventual goal of continuous practice in kenjustu is to do this: v
PPS: Between Kevin and I we only have 3 spare bokkens so please bring your own if possible. also, i'm also thinking about including quick draw with the swords. towards the end we will do free practice (gentle dueling). please give feedback and/or rsvp!

Use your drill to pierce the heavens!!! kamina2

OK so i'm thinking of making the kenjutsu thing a weekly thing. everyone seemed to be busy this week. i was there until 5:30 and no one showed up. for future reference, though every friday (unless previously stated) will be a kenjutsu day from 4:00 to 8:00 at freedom park. I will try and reserve space at the park but it really shouldn't be necessary. also, because of the nature of the training, it would be best if you show up as early as possible as you may miss out on stretching, and other important practices.

Update: due to scheduling issues with my sister, Kenjutsu practices will now be from 5:15 to 7:30 (still on fridays though). I'm hoping this is not in conflict with anything?

So i was thinking, I should probably break down what the practice is gonna be like, huh? first, the cutting directions and primary targets used in kenjutsu. if done properly, some of these kata are really gonna put some stress on your body so warm ups will come second. review of the basic kamae for those who missed last week's stance training will be third. next is the different drawing techniques. after drawing we will do 7 iaido kata. the first 3 will be from the 13 seitei kata that are standard in every major kenjutsu style. the next 4 will be aiki-toho iai and are used to teach footwork aswell as the relationship between the katana and open handed fighting techniques. after then we'll be doing paired drills with kevin, including the basic kumitachi or paired sword forms. if we have time after all this, there will be battoshiai or quickdraw, and jujutsu. comments, questions, thoughts, queries?

I guess you guys really are jews. no one came out for practice friday afternoon. Shabat doesn't start till sundown, guys. lol, jokes aside, it was just kevin and I training. We got some good training in but it would have been nice to have atleast one more person there. no hard feelings though. Maybe next week, eh? We meet at 5:00 please be no later than 5:15 or you will miss important pieces of training. Osu!

Hey guys, what's going on? the last two kenjutsu practices have been empty. first one was just kevin and I and last week only I showed up. I'm wondering if everyone forgot about it. I moved the practices to Thursdays round noon time so more people could show up. show me some love and come in this Thursday from 12:30 to 2:30 at freedom park by the pavilion.
