Basic Strike Exercise

The Basic Strike Exercise is designed to practice the basic strikes, proper stance and ideal weapon control. This exercise can also be performed alone.

The basic movements should be performed with the weapon as slowly as possible and with straight paths or controlled patterns. The overall alignment of the weapon should be correct (including alignment of the blade, etc). At a later stage, the transitions should also be correct (i.e. they are fluid, do not fall into the wrist, etc). Furthermore, attention should be paid to the following: Hand position, movement of the arm and shoulder, overall posture and stance.

Each trajectory should be straight from the maximum lunge position to its final position. Then the weapon is slowly rotated around the wrist and the same trajectory is returned to its natural end position (lunge position).

The maximum position and the natural end position are the positions to which the weapon can be guided by the movement of the upper and lower arm alone, without moving the wrist.

The following paths are described, which are based on the fives:

  • (R6-L6)
  • (R7-L7)

During the exercises, the transitions to the back movements should be as harmonious as possible and the joints should be guided without stress.

The lanes to be executed can of course be expanded to practice a larger repertoire of attacks:

  • (R1-L1) from top right to bottom left and back.
  • (L2-R2) from top left to bottom right and back.
  • (R3-L3) from right to left on hip height and back
  • (Ro4-Ru4) from top right to bottom right and back (down the right arm)
  • (Ro5-Lu5) from left top to right bottom and back (the left arm off)
