    Way of the Samurai.

    Domon awaits his teacher. While waiting Domon rests his hand on the hilt of his katana with his other hand placed inside his shirt. His eyes are closed as he starts a slight meditation.

Then place your right foot slightly forwards whilst shuffling it a few paces and not lifting and at the same time shuffle your left foot backwards.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    I listen to the instructions clearly. I then stand straight, with my shoulders parallel with my feet. I then slide my right foot forward, while also sighing my left foot backwards. Doing this gives me great footing and also gives me a balanced stance so that I won't be knocked over easily.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.


    Good work, this is the basic posture of samurai now clench your fists and to your sides and the outer hand facing downwards. Then take your left hand placing it onto the scabbard at your left side and taking your right to unsheave your katana, whilst taking a vicegrip at a 45 degree angel at the base of the hilt and unsheave the katana. As you bring it fully out the scabbard bring your left hand taking the same grip to the bottom of the hilt and then level the hilt to your belly at about a fist distance away then raise the blade to point at my throat and keep that stance with the same posture maintaining the square posture of having your shoulders parallel like this diagram below:

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    Again I listen intently to the instructions, making sure to take it all in. While keeping the same stance, I place my left hand onto my scabbard. With my right hand I take a good firm grip on the sword just below the guard. I then slowly unsheathe my sword. Then I bring my left hand up and grab the sword that is now level with my stomach and a short distance from my stomach. My hands are about a hands width apart from each other. I then bring the the sword up and point it at your throat.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    Good work, now that the basic position has been attained we shall move onto basic attack and defence. For attack i want you to raise your sword above your head keeping it in the center of your body and your right left hand just above your head and then as you bring it down step forward with your right foot first into the attack aiming for this dummies head and then step backwards with your left foot first then bringing your sword back to the same starting position aiming for the neck. this in kendo is known as Men-do

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    While standing with my feet slightly apart and my shoulders parallel to my feet. My sword is tilted slightly up with both hands on the hilt. Slowly I bring my sword upwards until the sword is above my head. I then swing my sword towards while also taking a step forward with my right foot. The sword cuts right though the dummies head. I bring my sword back down to the starting position, while taking a step back leading with my left foot. The swords final resting place is aiming at the neck of the dummy.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    Good now for a defence i will use the same attack on you and what i want you to do is bring your sword upwards in the center line of your body and as my sword comes down at you pivot your right hand whilst maintaining your left strong to tap the sword outwards giving you the openining to attack and in that moment bring your sword back centrally and lift up to your head and bring down towards my head but only do the motion without the speed and stop at my head please

    *takes the basic stance and brings up my sword and steps forwards into the cut as i bring down my sword slowly*

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    Still in the basic stance, I watch as you go for the attack. As you do I bring my sword up while turning the sword parallel to the ground. I keep my left hand firmly on the hilt as your sword connects with my. I give a push causing your sword to bounce of my sword giving me an opening to attack. I the turn my sword back to a front facing direction and bring it down once more towards your head but I stop before I make contact.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.



    Well then lets get down to business as we are only training in the techniques the first technique being.

    (Kossetsu Ashige) - Fracture Strike

    Rank: B
    Type: Offensive
    Range: Short - Mid
    Chakra cost: 20
    Damage points: 40
    Description: The user will draw their sword and release a pressurised cresent blade of chakra at the target causing them to be hit with a strong force of chakra.(The technique is capable of countering Ninjutsu B rank and below due to the chakra charge)
    Note: Can only be used by samurai biographies
    Note: Usable only 3 times per battle


    For this technique you basically concentrate and channel your chakra into your blade. Then begin to condence the chakra making it more powerful and with the kendo stance Sha no Kame in the diagram above as a means to wield the blade and swing the katana outwards and slashing upwards release the pressurised chakra into the shape of a cresent that is shot at the wooden dummy and then when done bring your katana back to the center position pointing to my throat.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    I begin by unsheathing my sword. I hold the sword so that horizontal at my waist, pointing horizontal. My right hand holding just below the guard with my fingers on the top of the hilt. My left hand is a short distance away from my right hand with my fingers on the bottom of the hilt. I then charge the blade with my chakra. I then compress the chakra in the blade. Once the sword is charged with chakra I swing the sword outward, as I swing the sword I release the chakra in the form of a crescent blade. I then bring my sword back to my stomach pointing it at the neck area.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.


    Now we proceed with the next technique:

    (Hadan no Jutsu) - Rapture Technique

    Rank: B
    Type: Offensive
    Range: Short
    Chakra cost: 20
    Damage points: 40
    Description: After envoking the samurai saber technique to use the chakra flow and then the user swings their sword and strikes his/her opponent.
    (The technique is capable of countering Ninjutsu B rank and below due to the chakra charge)
    Note: Can only be used by Samurai Biographies.
    Note: Usable only 3 times per battle.


    for this technique i want you to take the same pose again and concentrate your chakra into your katana, this is basically similar to the samurai saber but less powerful and then by raising your sword above your head or in any postion you wish swing the katana forwards to release the energy whilst striking at one the wooden dummies and as you swing it down step into the attack, then when done step backwards with small steps and return to the position to await further instructions

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    I hold the sword once more so that horizontal at my waist, pointing horizontal. My right hand holding just below the guard with my fingers on the top of the hilt. My left hand is a short distance away from my right hand with my fingers on the bottom of the hilt. I then charge the blade with chakra. Once the blade is charged I swing my sword in an upwards diagonal slash. The blade cuts right though the dummy like a hot knife though butter.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.



    great work time for the most commonly used samurai technique and the basic technique for use in the land of iron the samurai saber technique:

    (Samurai Guntou no Jutsu) Samurai Sabre Technique

    Rank: A
    Type: Offensive
    Range: Short - Long
    Chakra cost: 30
    Damage points: 60
    Description: This technique is unique to samurai, which employs the concept of chakra flow techniques similar to the flying sparrow and Kusanagi: Chidori katana. Through the use of chakra flow the user channels their chakra through their swords his extends the reach and the cutting ability of the blade, and also allows the user to fire crescents of chakra whenever the blade is swung. This released chakra is capable of great destruction as shown from how it destroyed a stone pillar. The samurai have also shown the ability to use shape transformation, as they can form their chakra blades into giant buzz saws, broad swords, spiked shafts, and axes. This ability allows them to rely on smaller swords while retaining greater reach, damage, and surprise attacks as needed.(The technique is capable of countering Ninjutsu of A rank and below due to the chakra charge technique).
    Note: Can only be taught and used by a Samurai Bio


    The samurai saber technique is the same as the other chakra charging techniques but this one takes on a more physical form around the blade. And there are various different ways to shape your chakra for example, you could form it into a buzzsaw to make it cut easier through things, or form into a dual headed axe for more brutal approach, but aswell as that you can release chakra cresents that are as strong as any elemental or non elemental ninjutsu. So what i want you to do is practice concentrating your chakra into your sword and then using shape manipulation to form first a buzzsaw and test on one the wooden dummies, then the dual headed axe and test it on a second wooden dummy and then finally releasing a chakra slash of energy to cut through a third.

    Give it a try now ^_^

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    I begin by holding my sword in one hand in front of my. I then channel my chakra into my sword. The chakra then takes form around my sword. I then manipulate the chakra to take on the shape of a buzzsaw. The buzz saw starts to spin as I do a vertical slash on the first dummy. The buzz saw rips right though the dummy. With the samurai saber still invoked I shape the chakra again but this time it becomes a double headed axe with each head sticking out to the sides. I then perform a horizontal slash aimed at the second dummies neck. The axe takes the dummies head clean off. As I finish with the bladed axe it fades and returns to its original state. Without missing a beat I perform an upwards diagonal slash, as I do I release the chakra in the the blade and from my sword a cresent shaped blade of chakra that slashes right though the third dummy. All three attacks are done in a fluid motion.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.



    Good work remember with that technique there are plenty more varieties that could be done such as spears , shields even a form of crossbow to shoot bolts of chakra. But now we move onto one the best skills in the Samurai's movepool the Art of Iaido.

    Iaidō (Art of Quick Draw and re-sheathing the sword) is constructed of smooth, controlled movements of drawing the sword from its scabbard, striking or cutting an opponent, removing blood from the blade via a quick and swift flick to the ground on your right or left side, and then replacing the sword in the scabbard. The way this ability works is that dependant upon your ranking depends on the speed and level of effectiveness against enemy ninja. In close range if your as strong or higher level than your opponent you can effectively counter the ninja from using hand seals and resort to trying to counter the attack through similar means of kenjutsu or using a weapon or merely dodging and thus rendering your opponent useless against you. Its a perfect method in drawing a battle with a ninja into close combat and keeping it if you continously press them into the situation.

    (Iaidō) - Art of Quick Draw and re-sheathing the sword

    Rank: A
    Type: Offensive, Defensive
    Range: Short
    Chakra cost: 30
    Damage points: 60
    Description: Iaidō is a form of kenjutsu where the user quick draws the blade extremely fast to strike, then re-sheathing it. This method prevents enemies from using hand seals, thus preventing them from using Ninjutsu making it highly effective against enemy ninja. General Mifune of the Land of Iron is a master of this style, making him highly effective against even ninja of caliber of Sasuke Uchiha and Hanzō the Salamander. (The speed of the technique is equivilant to that of the rank of the user)
    Note: Can only be used by Samurai biographies


    We will begin firstly with the stance, similar to the basic stance which i will provide again with clear instruction (as i found some old notes from land of iron xD)

    Chudan no Kamae:
    the wielder of the katana has their right foot out infront of them and their left foot slightly behind them with the heal slightly raised off the floor and left leg slightly bent. The holding of the katana itself has the hilt leveled near your waist, an inch and half below your belly button and then held about 2-3 inches infront with the sword pointed 45 degrees upwards towards the targets throat. it is the most commonly used form due to its ability to be in the middle of all incoming attacks and can easily defend them.

    Then after attaining this form i want you to place your left hand on the scabbard with your thumb pressed up against the tsuba with your right hand on the hilt and then i want you to push the Tsuba with your left thumb so its slightly unsheaved and as you do pull the katana out of the scabbard fully before raising it to above your right shoulder with the blade facing forwards and then turning it around as you change the hold to show your back hand to the outside and bringing the katana down in a diagonal slash which will be the inital attack to cut through your opponentm then when your done i want you to do a swift and quick flick of the katana to your right side to represent the cleaning of the blood from the blade and then quickly change your hold to a reverse grip and slowly guide the blade into the scabbard and again switch your hold to the original so that you can then be ready to counter your opponent or prepare to fight another and ending the ritual of Iaido.

    Follow this method for a complete set of 5 times, (seperate posts) and start with a slow step for every movement so you get the basics down and then with each try increase your speed so that you end on your fifth attempt having increased your speed 5 times and making use of iaido more fluidly. For the initial cutting practice on this line of bamboo canes.

    After you are done with those 5 separate posts of that move, I want you to do the following set of moves (separate posts as well, which is called Happō-Giri (Cutting in Eight Different Directions). Each cut is a simple strike from the top of the head straight down the centre line, with the bokken ending parallel to the floor at roughly the same height as the lower abdomen. The order of the strikes is north, south, east, west, southeast, northwest, southwest, northeast, finally returning - without performing a ninth cut - to the original position (north).

    First, Kirioroshi (Makkōgiri):
    You bring the sword above your head again and slash your sword vertically down, aiming at the top/center of the head.
    With this move you can also cut their wrists if they have their hands in front of them etc. After the move, return to the basic starting stance as we learned in the very beginning.

    Second, Migi Kesagiri:
    With this, you again raise the sword above your head turn it a little to the right and bring it down towards their left shoulder/neck area,
    creating a diagonal slash going from the right to the left. After the move, return to the basic starting stance as we learned in the very beginning.

    Third, Hidari Kesagiri:
    This is almost the same but you do the move from the left.
    So you again raise the sword above your head turn it a little to the left and bring it down towards their right shoulder/neck area, creating a diagonal slash going from the left to the right. After the move, return to the basic starting stance as we learned in the very beginning.

    Fourth, Migi Ichimonji:
    You move your blade swinging it horizontally from the right to the left, cutting the trunk area of the enemy. With this you can also cut the tendencies of the arms as well. After the move, return to the basic starting stance as we learned in the very beginning.

    Fifth, Hidari Ichimonji:
    The same move but you invert your position and movement.
    You move your blade swinging it horizontally from the left to the right, cutting the trunk area of the enemy. After the move, return to the basic starting stance as we learned in the very beginning.

    Sixth, Migi Gyakugesa:
    Here you do a diagonal slash coming from below, the right side of you, rising to the left.
    You aim at the torso area of the enemy. After the move, return to the basic starting stance as we learned in the very beginning.

    Seventh, Hidari Gyakugesa:
    Here it is the same. You do a diagonal slash coming from below, the left side of you, rising to the right.
    You aim at the torso area of the enemy. After the move, return to the basic starting stance as we learned in the very beginning.

    Eighth, Tsuki:
    With this move, you simply thrust your sword in to the enemy.
    You can aim in several different locations such as the throat, chest, stomach, limbs and what ever. After the move, return to the basic starting stance as we learned in the very beginning.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    I begin by placing my my shoulders square. I then shuffle my feet apart with my left heel slightly raised. I then place my left hand on my scarrab and my thumb pushed against the the tsuba and I place my right hand on the hilt of the sword. Then I push the sword up with my thumb while also pulling the sword with my right hand. I pull it out delivering a swift cut to the first bamboo pole. I then hold the sword at my side and flick the blade. I then take it in a reverse grip and slowly guide the sword back down into the scarrab. Once in I change my hand to the original one to initiate another attack.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    With the same stance still in place I push the sword up with my thumb while also pulling the sword with my right hand. I pull it out delivering a swift cut to the second bamboo pole. This cut is done slightly faster than the first. I then hold the sword at my side and flick the blade simulating getting rid of the blood.. I then take it in a reverse grip and slowly guide the sword back down into the scarrab. Once in I change my hand to the original one to initiate another attack on the third bamboo pole.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    With the same stance still in place, I once again push the sword up with my thumb while also pulling the sword with my right hand. I pull it out delivering a swift cut to the third bamboo pole. This cut is done slightly faster than the second. This cut is done almost twice as fast as the first two. I then hold the sword at my side and flick the blade simulating getting rid of the blood.. I then take it in a reverse grip and slowly guide the sword back down into the scarrab. Once in I change my hand to the original one to initiate another attack on the fourth bamboo pole.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    With the same stance still in place I flick the sword up with my thumb while also pulling the sword with my right hand. I pull it out delivering a swift diagonal cut to the fourth bamboo pole. The pole falls down to the ground. This cut is done faster than all the cuts before. I then hold the sword at my side and flick the blade simulating getting rid of the blood. I then take it in a reverse grip and slowly guide the sword back down into the scarrab. Once in I change my hand to the original one to initiate another attack on the fifth and final bamboo pole.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    With the same stance still in place I flick the sword up with my thumb for the final time, while also pulling the sword with my right hand. I pull it out delivering a swift diagonal cut to the fifth and final bamboo pole. The pole falls down to the ground. This cut is done faster than all the cuts before and is almost a blur. I then hold the sword at my side and flick the blade simulating getting rid of the blood. I then take it in a reverse grip and slowly guide the sword back down into the scarrab. Once in I change my hand to the original one to initiate another attack.

    Re: Way of the Samurai.

    I begin by again squaring my shoulder and placing my feet slightly apart. I then unsheathe my sword and hold it in both hands. The sword is positioned just below my belly button. The sword is pointed at a 45 degree angle. I bring the sword up above my head. I bring the sword straight down onto the dummies head. I then remove my blade and return to the original stance.

    Finishing the last cut I had returned to the original stance, with my feet spread apart and my sword at a 45 degree angle. To begin this cut I once again bring my sword up above my head.Unlike the first cut I turn the sword a little to the right and I bring the sword downward making a diagonal slash that connects with the left side of the dummies neck.

    Finishing the last cut I had returned to the original stance, with my feet spread apart and my sword at a 45 degree angle. With this next cut I bring the sword to my right and slash the sword to the left cutting the trunk of the dummy. Once the cut is made I bring my sword by to the starting position, which is just below my belly button and the sword at a 45 degree angle.
