throwing a wakizashi

Postby Geordie Ross » Sun Feb 03, 2013 2:15 pm

I've seen it in a few movies now, they throw a wakizashi and it flies like a spear, was wondering if its really possible or not? I don't know many wakizashis that are top heavy?

movies,.....................sigh

I have seen a practitioner lose his katana on a nukitsuke (horizontal draw) that flew across the dojo in a straight line the entire length of the dojo. Although if he tried to do this again on purpose, I doubt he could.
So I guess you could draw your own conclusions from this.

Possible but impractical and unlikely to succeed?

Dot
i remeber you cautioning me of that very occurence
I suppose it might be like throwing a shiriken(sorry if spelt wrong) could be a distraction that gets you the upper hand, but then if unsuccessful you've lost a sword!!
