How to Do the Kiri Age Katana Technique in Sword Fighting

Learn how to do the kiri age technique from Sensei Oliver Martin in this katana sword fighting video from Howcast.


Okay, here's a quick introduction to the third technique, kiri age. The opponent is in [xx], I'm in [xx]. As he comes in, I step forward and out to the side just a bit, but my blade comes in here, into the midsection. Then, once it's there, I turn with my body and walk through with his hands, using my sword to guard myself. One more time. So, I'm in [xx] and as he comes in, I just throw it in there, just like so. From here, once it's inside, I turn and walk, keeping the blade on those hands and cutting through. That's just a quick demonstration of the third technique, kiri age.
