Takagi Yoshi Ryu Daisho Sabaki Kata Review

Saturday morning class. Daisho Sabaki. It’s been a while, a long cycle since we practiced these waza. So much fun to revisit them again and discover new insight to movement as we have had some time to mature a bit since the last time. 

Daisho sabaki as muto dori? One of the first adjustments we needed to make in exploring these waza is the distance. With swords in the belt, not deployed yet, the distance is different compared to other waza where one is in shizen and being cut from daijodan no kamae. 

There is also an inherent duality in the- your training partner has both long and short sword, as do you- if one is not careful and aware of the positioning the daisho can be turned on you.
