DAREBEE Workout: What it Works
There is just never a single move that will take down a Samurai. Won't even come close, which is why in the Samurai workout, part of Darebee's Katana Week, you get to practice two-three moves at a time, learning to feint and slash, parry and cut, feint and thrust. All of it flowing beautifully with complete changes in direction and total body positioning behind each cut. Grab your bokken, katana, mop handle, make sure there are no electrical appliances, pets or other human beings within striking range and enter the world of Japan's legendary warriors, preparing yourself for ultimate battle. In the video the set has been centered for filming so the steps are pretty much on the spot. Practice at home and provided you have enough space you can actually take some pretty big steps, quickly which will only add to the power of your thrusts, cuts and slashes.
Extra Credit: 30 seconds rest between sets.
