Intermediate Test-Cutting with the Longsword

Intermediate Test-Cutting with the Longsword


Note: You may only register for one cutting class, not both. You must be registered for Longpoint to attend this class. It is recommended that fighters who enter this class can consistently cut a mat with basic cuts.

This workshop is designed for those who have experience test-cutting and are confident in their fundamentals. It will begin with an exploration of different methods of both increasing the challenge of basic test cutting, as well as giving due consideration to combative realities, including distance management, contingencies for failure, and what the practitioner is meant to get out of “double cuts” beyond bragging rights. The workshop will culminate in individual attention and feedback given to the student as they cut tatami targets. For intermediate to advanced practitioners.

Equipment necessary: blunt sword is needed and your own sharp sword is recommended but optional
