            This description has the makings of a good plot base for a "bad-but-good-movie": Another great quarter-final was between Furukawa Kosuke of Osaka and Furusawa Nobuaki of the Imperial Police whose match was very aggressive and strong. They appeared to be taking chunks out of each other and were both given a hansoku at the same time, possibly for being overly aggressive

            Perhaps it was a matter of honor or maybe debate over the role of the Emperor in politics. Just add a flaming sword and shiny armor and I'm in!

            Seriously, though, that match would make an interesting video

              Osaka's dominance of kendo in Japan at the moment appears to be ongoing.
              Yeah baby.

                Thanks for your comments.

                Apologies but I did make a mistake. Uchimura went out in the 3rd round in his second match, not the 2nd round in his first match. I have updated the article to reflect this.

                        wow! The situation is getting hot...

                        The police "team championships" will be notoriously dangerous !!!

                        Kanagawa ken will get their mojo working!

                        And the all japan championships will probably be the best ever...

                        Hope everyone gets here

                            Okay, two things I found interesting in that final exchange between Teramoto and Kiwada.

                            I love how Teramoto does seme with his front foot, and then with the toes barely touching the floor, launches straight into men. This is something I've seen a lot of top-level guys do. Front foot is light as a feather, no tsugi-ashi with the back foot, then boom. Love that.

                            Also like the way Kiwada slides his left hand up to his right for the kaeshi-do. Smooth. There's a bit of a sense of, well, premeditation in his kaeshi-do, but definitely a clean strike.
