    Default Hidari Wakigamae

    What is your experience with Hidari Wakigamae? Is there any realistic emphasis on it in your style? I haven't had any experience in Japanese sword arts, but any time I see Wakigamae, it's on the right hip side, and almost never on the left hip.

    I am not a sword expert but I think in general most JSA training forces a right hand approach out of the left handed. Hopeful some of the true experts will weigh in.

    Don't think he was suggesting holding it with reversed grip.

    Nathan, you only have to try waki-gamae on the left side to realize how awkward it is with a conventional right-handed grip.
