Why a Sword?
Throughout human history, the meaning of the sword always represented a force to fight. Over the centuries, the significance of the sword as a means of both engaging one’s concentration and focus and eliciting an acute sense of power and effectiveness in combat has remained consistent throughout the ages.
Loaded movement is beneficial to balance, health, and access to true core in so many ways. In Jungshin, we use light loads, levers (aerodynamically cut swords), to aid in the body’s natural ability to move gracefully while challenging both our physical and mental limits. The difference between a heavy-weighted loaded object vs. a light-weighted loaded object and how the body moves is directly related to and effected by the breath. In Jungshin, each strike and stance is directed by and synchronized with the breath. Come slice with us and find out for yourself just how critical the breath is in moving with ease and power with levers. You are worth it.
