Kashima Kenjutsu with Max Eriksson in Darmstadt 06. - 07. June 2020

Basics and kata

A natural connection with the sword is essential for practicing the katas. Therefore, we begin with exercises for breathing, and permeability in the body. Building on that, we approacht the first series “Kihon Tachi”.

The Saturday afternoon is about the role of Uke on the example of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd series.
Depending on the level of experience of the participants, we will deepen one of the kata series on Sunday.

The training is designed in away, that also beginners can participate well. The units build on each other and it is desirable that everyone is participating from the beginning.

On Saturday mornings, Aikidoka can also participate without experience with the sword.
The requirement for participation on Saturday afternoon and Sunday is a basic experience with the sword, e.g. by Aiki Ken or any style of Kenjutsu.
