The Wakizashi is a uniquely designed Japanese sword, typically measuring between 12 and 24 inches. Traditionally, it was worn tucked into the obi belt and paired with the Katana to form a set known as daisho. This weapon was particularly popular among the commoner classes, as they weren't permitted to carry the Katana.
Not only is the Wakizashi a symbol of elegance, but it's also a preferred weapon for close combat situations. Owing to its compact size, it provides high agility and maneuverability. Moreover, its design allows it to be wielded with just one hand, offering enhanced freedom of movement and a diverse range of striking techniques.
Samurais trained in various techniques to master the Wakizashi. They often practiced with the Bokken, a wooden replica of the sword, to hone basic movements. They also practiced the cutting technique called Tameshigiri, which involved slicing straw mats with a real sword to test and refine their skills.
