Although at first glance it looks like a katana, the Iaito is a long sword that is used for the practice of Iaido, Japanese martial art consisting of unsheathing and sheathing the Iaito. The main feature of the Iaito is that its blade is not sharp, or even designed to be sharpened, so we can avoid unnecessary accidents in practice. There are various sizes to choose according to the size of the person who will use it. Formerly practiced by the samurai, learning and mental dexterity was essential to gain maximum speed in their fights and thus not allow their opponents to unsheath. Nowadays it is common practice to start in managing Japanese swords. The main features of Iaito unlike katanas are as follows ... - The Iaito blade alloys are more durable and lighter (aluminum and zinc) - No rust - No maintenance required - They are resistant (when properly used) - They are not sharp and shouldn´t be sharpened - The sheets are not forged by hand - They are usually cheaper than professional or cutting katanas
The bokken is a wooden sword used in various martial arts from Japan, mainly in: classical Japanese swordsmanship or kenjutsu, modern traditional fencing or kendo, the art of unsheathing and cutting with the sword or Iaido, and the art of Jodo stick or fencing.
The nagamaki is a Japanese weapon that was popular between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries. Also known as nagamaki-naoshi. The nagamaki was developed by mid Muromachi period. Today is a rare collector's item, and a few teach martial arts technique.
The Naginata is a polearm used by the samurai of feudal Japan, consisting of a curved blade at the end of a long pole. It resembles a halberd or a European archa. It was very important in the fields of battle, where it was carried by the infantry to defend against cavalry.
The nodachi is a great two-handed Japanese sword. Features: the blade was more difficult to forge compared to a normal-sized sword; the nodachi required greater strength to properly wield; its cutting capability and range exceeded that of a katana, due to its weight and size.
The Sai is a very old weapon, and its origin uncertain, since there are very similar weapons in several countries from South to Southeast Asia, making it quite impossible to pinpoint the origin of the sai. The Japanese sai is an Okinawan weapon, believed to have been an agricultural tool that became a weapon, but also states that evolved from the outset as a weapon. Its basic form is that of a blunt knife but with a sharp point. The Sais are constructed in various ways, in some, the central tip is round and smooth, while others are octagonal. The tsuba is traditionally symmetrical, with both ends facing the front, but there are some variations of the Sai. The sai, originally, was able to kill or maul the enemy, as its hits to the sword, neck, throat or eyes were terrible. Sai has recognized the virtue of facilitating the improvement of posture and balance, basic for all karateka, because the movements are parallel, and its management requires skill and constant workout. On the other hand, the practice develops flexibility in both hands, wrists and forearms. The skillful use of the sai, requires a perfect coordination of advanced exercises. In the movie Elektra, 2003, based on a character in the movie Daredevil continually recreate the Sais.
Tachi was a type of Japanese sword worn by the samurai class of feudal Japan. The tachi style of swords preceded the development of the katana.
