The sword technique taught by Masaaki Hatsumi. It's not a way to defeat an enemy with a sword. If you get caught in a sword in your hand, your options will be narrowed and you will be in danger yourself. You will be free from the sword without trying to use your sword. By acquiring that feeling, you can know the true usage of the sword. A sword is a weapon, and also a dazzle.
The wisdom of martial arts that has been passed down from ancient people for 2,600 years. The martial arts taught by the modern-day martial arts god Masaaki Hatsumi are always backed by a sense of combat.
