Katana Zombie Survival Weapon TrainingSurvival Weapons - 05.18.2012
We get it, you’re fan of Michonne from the Walking Dead and you think the katana is the ultimate bad-ass zombie survival weapon. Or maybe you’ve seen YouTube videos of dudes hacking up a ballistics gelatin zombie dummy with a samurai sword – awesome. But a katana is one of those things, like many weapons, where not knowing how to use it properly can do more harm than good.
You can seriously harm yourself with a sharpened katana, and most sword schools won’t let you touch a sharp one (Shinken) until you’re blackbelt. Wanna use a sword to slice up some zombs? Great – get yourself a practice weapon and get yourself some training.
In this video, I show you basic grip, drawing and cutting with a katana. YouTube videos should not replace one on one instruction, and you should get a whole lot of training – and train safe.
