Japanese sword holding the sword posture
Since ancient times, the Japanese sword has been known for its beautiful shape as a weapon. Many famous swords have been collected as art pieces and contain the symbolic meaning of the soul of the samurai. Unlike swords in other countries, the biggest feature of the Japanese samurai sword is that the body itself shows an artistic sense in addition to the decoration of the shape.
Japanese samurai swords are well-known at home and abroad, and there are also a large number of collectors in China. But while playing, did you hold the katana in your hand right? Like many famous swords at home and abroad, the grip of the Japanese katana is very particular. Many people have more or less mistakes in the way they hold the katana.
First of all, you need to lightly press the hollow of the palm root and the tiger's mouth on the spine of the handle, and gently hold it with your fingers along the arc of the handle. The principle is that the front hand does not touch the edge of the handle and the back hand does not touch the top of the handle. The distance between the two hands is 1 to 2 finger widths. Avoid rust or wear of the shank and the metal parts of the shank. Then, check whether the blade is naturally aligned with the arm. If the force of the first three fingers is too strong, the wrist will be bent by the traction of the muscles, and the blade will not be in line with the arm. This is the general so-called "use the last two fingers and relax the first three fingers".
The key to determining the power of the Japanese sword is whether the swing direction of the blade is consistent with the speed of the blade. Holding the blade in this way can naturally make the blade and the arm into a straight line to obtain the maximum turning radius. In this way, with the shoulder as the axis and rotating at the same angular velocity, the blade can obtain the maximum speed.
