Katori Shinto Ryu Kenjutsu

Saturday, 6:00pm – 6:30pm, Demo Area

Katori Shinto Ryu Kenjutsu is a classical martial art focusing on sword fighting techniques. They train to fight with the traditional samurai weapons like the long and short sword, fighting staff, spear, and naginata (halberd). Modern kendo and iaido were born from the older schools of kenjutsu but their techniques are practiced in their unmodified forms and the focus is on the complete warrior who can utilize all weapons in practical combat at full speed.

This demonstration will include:
Iaijutsu (drawing of the sword using metal swords)
Kenjutsu (paired forms demonstrating katana vs. katana)
Two-sword techniques
Short sword techniques
Bo (fighting staff) vs. the sword
Naginata (halberd) vs. the sword
