This experience is specialized for tameshigiri(test cutting).
In this lesson you will try the most basic and fundamental cut the migi kesagiri (right side downward diagonal cut).
When you first arrive to the dojo you will change into a traditional training uniform called a keikogi. Guests will learn the basic history of Japanese swords and how they are manufactured.
After that, you will practice how to swing a katana (sword) using a blunt practice sword.
With any cut, the most critical aspect is the hasuji (angle of the blade).
If you can cut skillfully, there will be no feeling of resistance from the material being cut. However, if the angle of the blade is slightly off, you will not be able to successfully cut through the material or you may cut through the material but will experience a shock to your hands.
Now it is time to try test cutting.
First, we will test your blade angle on a hanmaki (half of a tatami roll).
Next, you will try cutting the thicker ichimaimaki (one tatami roll).
Finally, you will challenge yourself with a futomaki (two tatami roll)or yokonarabi(two tatami side by side).
You can choose futomaki or yokonarabi at the dojo.
Cutting futomaki or yokonarabi can be extremely difficult for people with no experience but with good instruction it is possible.
If the angle of your blade is correct, you will be able to cut even a futomaki or yokonarabi.
Other things to note
You are to handle sharp cutlery during lesson,
