Every few months Kage Dojo will have a workshop, sometimes one full day training, sometimes the whole weekend. We will pick a theme to train and study, whether its one of the schools or a specific weapon or set of techniques.

This time it was "tameshi giri", or test cutting, in which the student attempts to cut through a wrapped and soaked target with his "shinken", a live sword.

Here are some photos from the day hosted by one of kage dojo students:
