Katana - the legendary sword of the samurai

The Katana - the soul of the samurai - was worn from the 14th century, especially in combination with a wakizashi as daishō. The Samuraisword is a curved, two-handed long sword that is sharpened on one side. For the samurai, the katana is more than just a weapon, it expresses the culture and attitude to life of a warrior.

The Japanese samurai sword is a perfection of form and design. No other type of sword has cast a spell over people to this day. In Japan, the katana has always been regarded as something sacred. The sun goddess Amaterasu presented next to a mirror, the jewels - as a third gift, the sword to the people.

Traditionally, the katana was worn with the edge up in the belt (obi). This allowed for faster pulling and cutting. The oldest Japanese martial arts date back to the 15th century. It is characteristic of Kenjutsu and the martial arts that develop from it, such as Iaido and Aikido, that the blade is not struck vertically against a target, but rather the movement is carried out in a pulling-cutting manner.

The warrior puts the intention into the sword, the warrior who wields it. Anyone who takes the sword in his hand takes responsibility for his actions, his actions, for his thoughts and emotions. Whoever wields the sword learns to make decisions, set boundaries, maintain space and cut through deception. Those who carry the sword in their heart develop a sincere attitude, the determination and the courage to open up to life and to follow their true destiny.
