On the weekend, the 26th Coupe des Alpes will take place in Chambéry. Here is a reminder to what is required for championships and grade examination.
For the championships, arbitrators seek 6 elements : correct ki, position and body movement. They will also watch whether the last third of the shinai cuts the right part of the armour as well as the zenshin.
For grade examination, also 6 elements are sought : distance, opportunity, body movement, te no uchi, power and skilfulness.
