    Shoulda aimed for his feet.

    I used to do this. You don’t do leg shots.

    The available places to hit are:

    Men – the head
    Do – the stomach
    Kote – the hands/gloves
    Tsuki – thrust to the throat

    A good solid hit usually ends in a continuous motion as your opponent’s Men runs along the length of the sword and you should end up behind the opponent. It emphasizes the slicing of the sword, instead of a chopping motion.

    So if I ever have to face off against a katana-wielding dude, I’ll aim for the legs so he won’t expect it. Got it.

    FYI there is a difference between a someone who does Kendo and a “katana-wielding dude”.

    Kendo differs from the specific training samurai went through, which had no restriction about hitting anywhere.

    If I find a katana-wielding dude today, what’s he more likely to be: kendo practicioner or samurai?

    Samurai don’t exist anymore. The Japanese feudal system was dissolved over a hundred years ago.

    If you meet a “Katana wielding dude”, he will most likely practice Kenjutsu or Kendo. But it’s more likely to be a Kenjutau guy.

    It’s more likely to be a Kenjutsu person, since most of the Kendo people I know stick to the sporting aspect of their art and don’t even own a Katana, while the Kenjutsu people I have met are trying to train like an actual Samurai, and therefore are more likely to own an actual Katana.

    Let’s get back to reality here: if you meet a guy with a sword it’s likely some dumb/drunk/high teenager that bought his sword in a store because it looked cool.
