Comment nouer l'étui du sabre? - Association Dokusan

by sbrothier
Afin de préserver le sabre des agressions extérieures (intempéries, poussières, chocs) en dehors de son utilisation, il est de coutume de le ranger dans un étui appelé katanabukuro (littéralement: sac à sabre).

Fiches pratiques Association Dokusan

by sbrothier & 1 other
Si rien ne s'oppose à l'utilisation d'une ceinture étroite pour commencer l'étude de la voie du sabre, le iaidoka préfère généralement revêtir un obi ( 帯) large lorsqu'il s'implique dans la pratique. En effet, outre des qualités fonctionnelle et esthétique, la ceinture large est emblématique de l'élégant vêtement coutumier japonais (kimono). Le raffinement ne se limite pas au choix de tel ou tel type de ceinture mais aussi à la manière plus ou moins complexe de la nouer. Voici un échantillon de noeuds pour homme destinés à fermer un kimono traditionnel.

How to Fold Your Hakama

by sbrothier
Keeping your Kendo gear in good order is important to all Kendoka. The Hakama need to be folded after each use, else they become wrinkled and the pleats will slowly be lost. It is essential that you maintain the pleats in your Hakama, as each pleat represents one of the virtues all kendoka strive to demonstrate. Loosing a pleat is the same as saying you no longer care about the virtue it represents!! With a little bit of practice, the entire folding process should take no more than a few minutes.

This page features the construction of Shirasaya. Thumbnail images are accompanied by a short narrative. I did notice that in the process of creating this project page that there are quite a few images involved and that I had neglected to detail most of the shiage stages (finish). I will remedy this with additional photos to be added later.
