Kengome  間込

Kata demonstrated by Shimizu Takaji (Jo) and Kuroda Ichitaro (Tachi).




  • Shidachi

    Begin the same as Hissage. However, as you bring your feet together (Heisoku dachi) use the jo to lift the Odachi (to block any movement of the Odachi with the jo under Uchidachi`s wrist.) 


    Step back with left foot (hachijidachi)


    As Uchidachi thrusts with the Kodachi, right foot steps back, draw back the jo and strike the kodachi out of his hand.

    Sen-no-sen. Draw the jo back and strike (between the eyes to block the cut)


    Change grip on the jo and strike the Odachi down. Where? Into Uchidachi`s own foot.


    Kaeshi Tsuki. Osame.



  • Uchidachi
