9am - 12noon
The first Spring Pro-D Day workshop of 2008
focused on drawing and wielding the katana/bokken.
Techniques included sword etiquette, drawing, cutting, shaking the blood off
or "chiburi", and resheathing the sword or "Noto". Students also went through the similarities between sword technique and tai-jutsu, ending the workshop with addressing
multiple attackers with a katana.
