Koryu-Dai-San

Since it is the first Kata in the syllabus to include the use of knife (Tanto), wooden sword (Bokken) and stick (Jo/Yari), basic mastery of these weapons – both in use and at rest – should be accomplished well before candidates attempt to grade using them.

Although we use a stick, or Jo, in our practice, the techniques are based upon those of the spear (Yari) and is the only Koryu-no-Kata to include sword-to- sword techniques.

This is a ‘fighting’ or ‘self defence’ kata and should be demonstrated in an effective and dynamic manner in keeping with ancient fighting methods.
