Itto Ryodan

Itto Ryodan: Splitting the opponent in two with a single stroke

You face the opponent sideways, holding your sword on your right, downward, the sword tip facing away from you. When the opponent swings his sword down at your left shoulder, swing your sword up and, in a semi-circle (the wheel), strike his fists. As you do this, your left shoulder will twist away from it's origional position and escape the enemy sword.

Because of the low posture you assume, this technique is named Chinryu: "A Dragon Crouching In Water"

Sorry guy. Very interesting, but it has no place in modern day tactics and training. Closed as off topic.
TFL Members are ambassadors to the world for firearm owners. What kind of ambassador does your post make you?

I train in earnest, to do the things that I pray in earnest, I'll never have to do.
