剑道感想(二)

周六去cleveland kendo association练习了6个小时,从下午3点到晚上9点,然后和大家一起去number one pho吃了晚饭,一群饥肠辘辘的剑友一等食物上来以后就安静的只剩下吃饭的声音了,而我居然成了桌子上第一个吃完的人。

今天练习又有几点收获。

1。今天居然学习了kata的前3个movement。一起练习的以色列交换生已经练习了4个月了好像以前也就看过别人练。所以感觉特别兴奋

2。今天还知道了右脚在站立的时候原来也需要微微抬起,这样就右脚就随时处于可以往前slide的状态,站在那里要有bounce的感觉。这是一个higher ranked 的sensei纠正的。左脚不需要抬起太高。

3。把剑往上挥的时候,是一个半圆,往上挥的角度是tip of the shinai顺着对方的men的角度,然后再收回至左手离额头一个拳头的距离。

4。注意men的声音要和men strike、左脚收回同时发生。

附kata 的英文介绍

Kata
Nihon kendo kata consists of predefined sets of attacking and defending movements, performed with metal or wooden swords (katana or bokken, respectively). In practicing kendo kata, one gains a better appreciation of handling and reacting to “real” swords, as opposed to shinai kendo.There are 7 long sword (tachi, or daito) forms, and 3 short sword (kodachi, or shoto) forms.

The following must be performed for shinsa (promotional examination) according to International Kendo Federation (FIK) regulations:

  • 1 kyu: tachi forms 1 – 3
  • 1 dan: tachi forms 1 – 5
  • 2 dan: all tachi forms (1 – 7)
  • 3 dan and above: all tachi forms (1 – 7) and all kodachi forms (8 – 10)

At Norwalk Dojo, kenshi must learn kata at least one level above the FIK regulations. 

Kamae
There are 5 basic kamae used in kendo kata, 6 if you count the two jodan forms separately. Unless otherwise specified, step forward to assume the kamae, the hands and tip of the sword are aligned with the centerline of the body, and the body faces straight forward. The back heel is always slightly raised.

  • chudan no kamae. Middle kamae, basic kamae with the tip pointing to the opponent’s throat.
  • migi-jodan no kamae. Overhead kamae, right foot forward, sword at 45degree angle, left hand one fist from the forehead.
  • hidari-jodan no kamae. Overhead kamae, left foot forward, sword at 45 degree angle, left hand one fist from the forehead. The left hand is positioned above the left eye, so the tip is slightly to the right, behind the head.
  • gedan no kamae. Lowered kamae, tip slightly lower than the opponent’s knee.
  • hasso no kamae. Similar in form to hidari-jodan, but the kamae is slightly above the right shoulder instead of overhead. The right hand is even with and about one fist away from the mouth, the left hand is aligned with the centerline of the body, sword at 45 degree angle.
  • waki gamae. Behind the body kamae. Step back with the right foot, and position the sword so that it angles down with the tip hidden from the opponent, with the left hand near the right hip. The body turns to the right.
