I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor) Fun & Challenging drill that will help you develop understanding of vertical cuts and body mechanics as you transition in between cuts. Video is on the long side so there is an Index for quick reference. Video Index: 3-Cut Drill: Intro [0:00 - 3:18] The 3 cuts(visual) [3:18 - 4:00] Rotation Pattern(visual) [5:00 - 7:24] CutbCut Walk-through (demo) [7:23 - 9:38] Drill Rotation [9:39 - 10:00] Race me! [10:01 - 11:20] ## Thanks for watching## Synopsis, goals, good luck ...[11:20 - 14:30] Although the drill is fairly straight forward (as the name implies) within the overall movements together lies a treasure hold full of wisdom. All of these things i can't yet demonstrate with fluidity, but i wanted to offer it to others as a means of catalyzing their personal training. Until very recently i left it up to myself for years to practice with a bokken, I've destroyed countless cheap swords because of inadequate knowledge about katana style swords and poor technique. After spending several hundred dollars now on different blades and having the opportunity to cut freely for several months it is becoming more and more apparent how much more important technique is, as opposed to blade quality. Surely as you get more skilled or if you are cutting in competition grade events a higher quality sword will be something you look to invest in. This video is meant to reach out to the backyard cutters out there that know the pain of dropping some cash on a sword (usually the first or 2nd one) and having it arrive! full of hope you can cut a bottle or...something...Walk out, get set up, first swing you get a bend, or a chip. This video is for the people that would love to practice Kenjutsu if only they had the time, money, or an accessible dojo with a knowledgeable Sensei. While I myself am not a teacher in any sense of the word I am very enthusiastic about things related to swords and martial arts in general. Through my personal training (pain, disappointment, fatigue, patience, sprinkled with tiny bits of success) as well as some great advice from phenomenal "backyard cutters" I'm compelled to share my experience. Simply i feel very appreciative of discovering all these wonderful sources of information that have made it possible to take a passion of mine and run with it. In this video i hope to provide some basic instructions for doing the drill while providing my own perspective on my experience. I would not dare say that i have the drill mastered, nor would i say that I'm proficient but despite that perhaps by watching you may be able to discover something in your vertical cuts that has been preventing you from achieving a clean strike to a menacing bottle or tatami mat. This is essentially one of those cases where it would prob be best to do "as-i-say" and not as i do lol but if you do happen to see where i make mistakes reflect on that later in your practice and see if you can discover why the mistakes happen and how to avoid them in the future. Feel free to comment, critique, or offer your own opinions on the drill if you would like. I'm finding that by watching myself do the drill through these videos i can correlate good experiences with the visual aspect of what my body was doing at that time. I use these to document my experience training and allow me to reflect on what happened afterwards. feel free to subscribe if this was helpful and you would be interested in joining me on my training journey through thick and thin :D
