#115082 - 02/22/05 05:02 PM Tameshigiri

I'm presently investigating this awesome topic and hope someone in the online martial arts community can give info or details re. the following three aspects of this topic.

1. Year when the the Japanese test cutting originated.

2. The type of swords used for the assessment.

3. The step-by-step process of tameshigiri.

I would appreciated any assistance given. [IMG][/IMG]

This inquiry would probably net you the most replies over at Bugei's forum site Bugei sells a lot of swords for tameshigiri and as a result a lot of the tameshigiri folks hang out there. Check the Tameshigiri forum there. You'll probably find the answers to many of your questions in the forum archives.
