Why is your katana clicking?
even metatron has roasted this so called expert
so is this math class? or how to hold a fuggin sword?
Why is your saya sticking out so far like that?
First off your thumb doesn't absorb the blow because of the angle the katana impacts at. Second for the idiot who said kung Fu, that's Chinese dipstick.
for ONCE, this guy is right
Not saying this is wrong. I just would rather not have the force of impact absorbed by the knuckle of my thumb. Like using a pistol, the back strap should rest in the crotch of the thumb and index directing recoil into the much more stabe arm. But different strokes…
Why is there always a bunch of white people when I look up Kung fu stuff?
There are different grips for different techniques, to say nothing of the differences between different schools. This is just one of them. The best grip is the one that best suits your technique, the exercise you're performing, what (and by who) you've been taught, and the weight and balance of your sword.
good to now 😉
oh, 45 degree angle… I didn't know that…
but know I do 😀
'In spite of what you morons think this is how you hold a katana' and there was me thinking the heels of the hands should be on the back of the sword to help ensure correct tenouchi while cutting and to ensure the sword stops in the correct position. I must now run and tell my 8th dan hanshi Iai teacher in Japan that for the last 60 years he has been holding his sword wrong, thank you for your enlightening words!
that wrong. the thumps r not on top.
This looks like a wall hanger…
I've done some basic kendo in the past, and it now occurs to me that I have been swinging my real sword wrong all along because of that. Which is funny, because I still consider myself a fairly decent cutter
In spite of what you morons think; this is the correct way to hold a katana.
"everybody" wants to be a critic.. everybody wants to prove you wrong even when you're right. and all that does is cause a web of confusion. so i am right there with you on that.
Ronoroa zoro brought me here :3
Make sure your right hand index finger is up against the tsuba so that any hit to the tsuba (guard) will make you want to let go of th- oh. Hang on. Yeah. Don't do what this ninjer says or shows. It's a load of toss.
Roronoa Zoro uses 3 katanas.<3 lol :3
Holding a katana is al in how your tought and what your style is. Thats all there is to it.
Howcast…what is your rate of uploading videos?
"It's very different from a baseball bat…"
You don't say?
Is that John Travolta? 😛
Pussy samurai lol.
Really? C'mon Howcast! You guys used to upload awesome videos of stuff we never truly needed but was always good to know. Such as how to do a great office prank, how to chill a soda in 2 minutes, or how to take a good picture.
When the hell will I ever use this?! I mean, I understand a katana is dangerous but odds are…I won't be using it anyways.
pretty sad when the commercial before the video was more entertaining the video itself.
Who the heck really cares
i dont think im ever going to need to know this, like ever..
that thing is crap. you can hear the cheapness when he moves is
Holding a Katana does take skill. It's a dangerous weapon if not handled properly.
