Test-Cutting Page
Test-Cutting is a vital and important part of the study of western swordsmanship, just as with Japanese swordsmanship. If we do not learn to actually cut, with sharp replica or original swords, then it is hard for us to learn proper edge-alignment, and simply to conceive what it means to cut an object or person. It teaches us many things about intent as well, and this is something which we then try to take back into our training, whether it is practicing drills or sparring. These first photos are from our recent visit to the Albion Academy of Armes, but more photos will follow from other test-cutting session, again varying types of target and with different types of sword. The types of target used are varied and all have advantages and disadvantages, and we have to thank group like the HACA for pioneering the study of test-cutting with European swords.
