View Full Version : Ranai
19th April 2010, 10:00 PM
During the last trainings at our dojo we have been practicing kata number 12 of seitei jo, Ranai. Whilst doing this kata and after having trouble remembering al the movements you have to do, I started wondering where you are trying to hit after having caught the sword doing do barai uchi. Are you still trying to break/ bend the sword, like in the kihon or are you hitting elsewhere?

In this case you are aiming for the head of the swordsman, rather than striking down on the sword as in the kihon. He moves back out of range and the tip of your jo drops to the floor.

Aha I see! Thank you for your reply :)
Is this described somewhere so I can show it to the people at the dojo?
