Wat je gaat doen
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. Students 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.
I am an instructor at Zen Nihon Toyama Iaido Renmei (ZNTIR)’s honbu dojo (headquarters) as well as a practitioner of the Japanese style of horseback archery called yabusame and a member of kyuba-kai. I work towards promoting and transmitting authentic Japanese culture to the world and future generations. The experiences I provide are not a form of entertainment or performance. There are many instances were groups or teachers take advantage of foreign visitors’ lack of knowledge about Japanese culture and provide them with a pseudo experience. I sincerely believe that this is wrong and teach only teach authentic Japanese kenjutsu (Swordsmanship) and spirit. For those who wish to have a proper experience, or want to study authentic kenjutsu, please come join one of my lessons.

Waar je naartoe gaat
The Toyama school of swordsmanship was originally taught by the old Japanese army and was the last kenjutsu to be used in actual combat. It was developed by combining the specialties of various sword schools. Under normal circumstances, this type of thing would never have happened. You can experience it at the honbu dojo (headquarters). Please come even if you have already had a samurai or ninja experience.
