How to Do the Ninjutsu Shuko Sword Defense Technique

Learn the Shuko sword defense technique from Sensei Oliver Martin in this Howcast ninjutsu video.


So this is just a technique from avoiding a sword cut using shuko, which is a weapon predominately used in Togakure school. In this technique I'm in Ichimochino Komai. Okay. They seem to come in to really cut, yes, at my head. So essentially, I need to use this as my shield. Right, so I want to place that just like so, here so that the sword gets caught in between the claws, if you will. Okay, and then I'm going to turn it, and turn down this top here, utilizing my Taijutsu in order to take the blade and secure it.

Alright, just one possibility from utilizing the shuko against the blade in the Togakure school.
