/jsa/ general

Japanese Sword Arts (JSA) General. A thread to discuss Kendo/jutsu and Iaido/jutsu. OP post is tailored towards Kendo since it is the most commonly practiced JSA.

>What is Kendo?
Kendo is a modern Japanese martial art which descends from Japanese swordsmanship (Kenjutsu), namely the Hokushin Itto-ryu school. It is practiced with shinai (bamboo swords) and armor. The philosophy of modern Kendo is based off of Budo concepts and aims to develop the self through practice.

>How is Kendo scored?
There are four valid target areas in Kendo: the top and sides of the head, the wrists, the torso, and the neck. Strikes made to these areas must contain correct footwork, posture/body movement, cutting path, use the correct part of the blade, a display of high spirits (through shouting), and zanshin; or the continuation of mental and physical readiness to attack again.

In competition, the match is judged by 3 referees who will raise flags corresponding to the color of the ribbon worn by the competitors. At least 2 referees need to agree to award a point. Match duration is best out of 3 points.

>Where can I find a Kendo club or dojo?

To come back on this, I've incidentally found this video of Nitta Suzuo

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdmjXuRHk38&t=58s

She was a teenager during the war iirc, she had to escape the two tokyo fire bombings. She would have been in her late 60s in the video.

I know i can google this, but i like to get real people input.
Anyone encountered/used a good online practice/training plan for beginner kendo/japanese swordmanship. Be it on youtube or something else.
Would really like to just practice the forms and techniques myself in my own time.
i am 100% beginner, just always liked swords (and love japan) and wanted another way to stay active at home
So when i came across a training bokken for cheap locally i decided to grab it and finally get started.

These two seem really good. Just follow them real close, record yourself, compare your movements to theirs. Also, join a dojo as soon as possible. No amount of videos, zoom lessons and online courses can compare to actual in-person training.
>>
>>70486
These seem like great starting points, thank you.
Perhaps one day i will join a dojo. I know for correcting form and such it really cant be beat.
For now its gonna be a couple small sessions a week to keep active (alongside some light home gym stuff i already do). Plus i live in the lockdown capital of the world (literally) so couldn't really do a class anytime soon if i wanted to.
Thank you for the advice of the filming myself to compare, that is definitely the best way to make my solo training as effective as i can.
>>
>>70500
Try to find something like a whole day or two-days stage. It's not classes but it's a springboard.
Starting by yourself is complicated, then again, that depends on what your goal is. If it's just to swing a sword on your own, that might be enough. Think of your safety, be careful when you train, good luck!

Imi is like the equivalent of the Gracie's. Yes he was the founder of the school but he was little more than a Jewish thug and he got his ass beat when him and his boys outnumbered another group and got their asses beat.

The irony is if youre really interested in nut kicks and headbutting you can probably still train that if you had the control for light sparring. That requires actual experience though.

>no live sparring with fully resisting opponents
99% of martial arts don't do this, including the effective ones.
Civilian Krav Maga sucks because they use ineffective techniques: If you want to fight like an amateur MMA guy, you better have the appropriate athleticism.

Just being in Israel isn't a guarantee it's good krav maga. It's extremely hard to get a license to run a martial arts school in Israel. But if you call whatever you're doing krav maga (even if it's some bullshit you made up), it's piss easy to get all the licensing and paperwork done.

Questions that don't deserve their own thread. All sports welcome.

Instead of making a new thread and cluttering up the board ask your beginner and basic questions here. Or complain about extreme sports you don't like.

Starting tip: You're not too old to skate and you shouldn't buy a complete from Amazon

Bummed skating has gotten so serious these days, people at the skatepark just skate for insta clips, Boomers are the only dudes i meet that have genuine passion for skating, Zoomers my age are so worried about looking cool and fitting in the skate scene, how are you coping bros knowing that the golden era of skating is over? Tiltmode army and prime louie barletta enjoi skate team has been lifefuel lately, Post those vids fellas, get it off your chest:

i think yall just gotta do you and forget about the past. shit changes over time, always. no use in trippen about it. just skate. on a molecular level we dont even exist. its one cosmic field of energy that cant be seperated from each other.

dont be on that washed out mentality. healthy ming, healthy body, healthy soul. if yall feel that way start your companies and be a role model for these kids. ive had to learn that many times, cuz it really is about fun.

yall ever been sponsored? shit legit felt like a job, I was on powell and dekline, but i was an arrogant fuck. yall think back then was better?

bro everyone was at competition for each other and even before that people got beat up for looking different.

let shit blossom. its all good. in terms of that blown out shit.

look up knees over toes, shit will keep you going way past the "normal age."

Being sponsored is gay unless you are making that energy drink money. Now you're obligated to get clips and do gay shit like commercials and photoshoots. I just want to shred, smoke weed, and impregnate underage skatepark thots.

>What is HEMA?
HEMA stands for Historical European Martial Arts, sometimes also called Historical Fencing.
It's reconstructing how to fight with swords, daggers, polearms and other weapons based on old European fighting treatises

To consider the effectiveness of a martial art, you should
>know how it would be effective against a single opponent
>know how it would be effective against 2-6 opponents
>know how it would be effective against a mob
>know its dependability on tools to be effective

For all these parameters, the only that covers it all is some staff (for non-lethal) or spear (for lethal) martial art. As a backup, you should know some other martial art effective with bare hands, but it is common knowledge your effectiveness against 2-6 opponents or more depends directly on if people knows or not your techniques and strategies, and it is indeed pretty much impossible to defend yoursel from a mob without a gun.

And I would like to discuss all that. What are the most effective martial art for each of those isolated considerations? We can even separate them if they're with the intent of being lethal or not.
