Sword Cutting Day

Friday 9th September.

Sword cutting is not only great fun but brilliant training. It will show you if you move with your centre and it will not forgive you if you use strength. The Katana is a deadly weapon but, when wielded incorrectly, it becomes a 3 ft, razor sharp baseball bat!

If you want to have a go you must order your targets at reception, collect them and prepare them yourself. There are three difficulties of of target that you can choose from;

  • 3 mats – arm
  • 4 mats – leg
  • 5 mats – torso
Once again, orders need to be submitted at the front desk ASAP!
