It is a certain fact that in modern time, the sword arts are fundamental different perceived from what it was in Medieval Japan.

now we can talk clearly about Iaido or Kendo, the Do aspect being certainly a defining.

on the other hand, the idea itself of practicing is totally different due philosophical approach of the Do.

the practice of kata is different today, especially that some sources in the literature support the idea that a few hundred years ago, kata was the only one safe way of training, this situation continuing until around the 19th Century when bogu was invented.

what has remained unchanged until now is the fact that in kata are included the perfect forms of art – an idealization of the fight – perfect movements, postures, strikes, parry and dodge.

a second aspect remained unchanged for centuries is the fact that in keiko both partners try to confuse each other so that the opponent fail to execute his technique in a favorable way and thus he would not hold an advantageous position in confrontation.

however, because now there is not a real stake in keiko, besides obtaining different sporty performance, means that the Iaido practitioner may repeat the same technique or sequence continuously for years, without feeling pressured by battlefield survival.

this way, I believe that today by studying kata in its idealized form lead to a spiritual development of the kenshi.

infinite repetition of the same kata, beyond the fact that clear up some specific technical issues, may exhibit determination, perseverance, self-control, maturity and power of reflection.

with each completed repetition and with the exercise of introspection, kata itself it is an exercise by understanding the interiority of the form in its deepest aspects.

being a martial art that can be practiced throughout a lifetime, likely there will always be a question about the last kata and if it will be eventually perfectly executed.

the readers of this martial art blog should understand that all the technical advices that I have wrote here do not replace the dojo training.
their purpose is meant to highlights the substance of each technique like something that should be considered as a summary.

Desi in prezent reprezinta modalitatea cea mai des utilizata in initierea unui atac rapid, tehnica in sine este recenta, ea neexistand si implicit nefiind folosita inainte de inventarea echipamentului de protectie folosit la antrenamente, din simplul motiv ca in lipsa acesteia o astfel de abordare ar fi fost extrem de periculoasa.

o reminescenta a istoricitatii martiale si probabil incercarea de a raporta un stil in esenta modern la o origine indepartata, conduce la aparitia motivului pentru care in niciun Kata care se exerseaza in mod curent nu apare Fumikomi-Ashi.

chiar daca practicantii scolilor traditionale nu o adopta din considerente mai mult sau mai putin bine argumentate, atitudinea in sine nu reprezinta decat neglijarea sensului evolutiv al artelor martiale si in acelasi timp lipsa capacitatii de adaptare la contemporan interpretata ca bresa cognitiva atat la nivelul atacului cat si la cel al apararii.

cititorii acestui blog de arte martiale ar trebui sa inteleaga ca toate sfaturile tehnice pe care le-am scris aici nu inlocuiesc antrenamentul din dojo.
scopul lor este sa scoata in evidenta pe cat posibil fara prea multe cuvinte esenta fiecarei tehnici asemenea unui rezumat.

Exista discipline martiale care se completeaza reciproc cum este cazul relatiei dintre Iaido si Kendo in sensul in care pentru a putea executa corect o tehnica de Kendo, este absolut necesar sa cunosti nu doar toate detaliile si punctele cheie ale traiectoriei sabiei de bambus sau doar legatura dintre forta aplicata si viteza optima de executie, ci si originea tehnicii in cauza.

Pentru a putea realiza acest lucru fiecare practicant trebuie sa acorde mult timp exercitiilor Kata.
Atat Iaido cat si Kendo isi gasesc esenta in Kata.

In Kendo, Kata se studiaza exclusiv cu partener utilizand arme din lemn menite sa le imite pe cele din otel, oferind in acelasi timp un nivel sporit de siguranta.

Acceptand ideea conform careia studiul si repetitia sunt cele doua dominante ale evolutiei in orice domeniu, in acest caz particular pana cand un practicant nu este capabil sa execute corect Nuki-Tsuke si Noto, nu are cum sa pretinda ca intelege ceea ce inseamna Iaido.

Dificultatea nu consta in a face un lucru, ci in a il face bine.
