The Way of Training
Training at Ken Shobu Do follows a system that has been improved for decades. First, the student, together with a more experienced partner, learns basic blows and blocks. The next level is paired combinations, the so-called "kata". After the student learns the kata, he begins to practice real combat situations. This exercise is called "nagarevaza". In it, a more experienced partner allows him to strike by himself and carry out combinations so to teach the student. The next step of "karukeiko" is a training match in which both fencers practice their techniques. After the student has learned a certain set of techniques and understands how to resist a partner, he is allowed to "keiko" - a full-contact fight to win. The goal of a duel in Ken Shobu Do is to win with one blow, this is the pinnacle of swordsmanship. Training in Ken Cebu Do takes place mainly in pairs, however, you can practice the basic techniques on your own while performing a set of "suburi" exercises.
