How to Do a Lai Katana Draw Strike in Sword Fighting

Learn how to do a lai draw strike from Sensei Oliver Martin in this katana sword fighting video from Howcast.


Okay. So, in this basic draw, I want to try and cut with the last piece of the blade, as much possible. So, I need to measure my distance in order to do that. So, in order to really strike effectively in your drawing techniques, you've got to be able to measure the distance and then also know, have a good feeling for what your basic draw is and be able to deliver the blade to the right position correctly. So, here I just want to touch the wrist. One more time. So that's just a little bit more about how to do a correct cut from a draw in basic iaido.
