Target-cutting SHIZAN / TAMESHIGIRI
In its original form
was exclusively used to test the sharpness and strength of a katana blade on different materials like metal, wood and human bodies.
Simply going through fancy cutting motions with a katana does not hone or perfect ones sword skills. It's only when one can actually slice through a target at the right angle, and maintain sword-trajectory, grip tenouchi and full control after each cut tome the results of ones techniques will become immediately apparent.
