Today I received my 3rd Dan Black Belt for Batto. The art of Japanese Sword Cutting. Today I used only a wakizashi (Short Sword) One handed cutting.

The temp was -1C and as you can see it was snowing. This was held at a very old shrine. More photos later.

My wife took these nice photos at 6 frames per second.

 

Cropped in a hurry. Sorry about bottom left. :-).
