Sage-0 no Kata (Sword String Form)

The Togakure Ryu Ninjutsu uses a small iron weight (fimdo) attached to the end of the Sageo. This was used as a form of Metsubushi when it was used for fighting. There were countless other applications for this as I am sure you realise (for when the Sageo is used as a rope). It was also common for the Sageo to have an egg filled with Metsubushi attached to the end of it. For these reasons, the Sageo was usually concealed inside the jacket. The Saya was also used as a form of Metubushi.

Sono Ni (Number 2)

For this technique, you tie the end of the Sageo to your Obi. This is so when you use the Saya as Metsubushi, you can recover it.

You begin in Shizen Tai. There are 2 Ukes - one in front, one

behind - they are in any Kamae. Remove the un-drawn sword from

the Obi in your left hand. With Kiai, cut to the Uke nearest you, then,

turn and throw the Saya to the second Ukes eyes as Metsubushi.

Then, you leap and cut the second Uke.

Only CORRECT practice makes perfect.
