So it is harder to be beaten and more chance to win. Since the stance itself is different, there are a lot to learn. Hence you can broaden your techniques. You do not have your shinai right in front of you to protect yourself.
You have nothing that is defending your organs such as your heart and so forth. Not only to protect yourself, but also to put pressure you have to do so without your shinai. You have to put pressure with your ki internal energy. Needless to say, it is very hard to do. Just be polite. It is the key : Hope this helps. Average Rating. Click here to add your own comments.

Those who take chudan also have to have the same kind of commitment. But jodan, yeah, definitely!
Feb 01, Rating Jodan by: Sam Murray I have just started taking jodan as my stance due to an injury and it really is difficult without a very strong grounding in the basics. I had only done kendo for just more than a year now, so was nowhere near the recommended time to take this stance and it was proved quite a challenge! Ask your sensei and especially don't attempt this stance without a instructor who does jodan themselves!
Otherwise you will fail, it's not something you can understand just by waving a shinai around in a similar fashion as a video showed you. Com : Thank you for sharing your view! I now understand the reason for this and gave me more insight to this kamae.
Hopefully I can be granted permission by my sensei to train in jodan no kamae after I gain more experience in kendo.
Thank you so much Tanno Sensei. What Imafuji-sensei said is true. In addition, you can't do Jodan no Kamae due of your level.
When you become 3rd Dan, you can do it. Here's another reason of doing so. That is your senpai might be a lefty. To be a lefty, it's an advantage of using it, but the main problem is the shinai's weight. That fellow senpai, who did you jodan no kamae had 3 reasons: 1 He might have hurt his right hand.
So your only viable target is tsuki. I have lots to do and to learn from all the stances. My sensei knows about it and told me to train my hands to be stronger. I use even jodan to learn it by myself, and to train the other students in it, because I know there might be a day to come, when they fight a jodan no kamae and I thought of giving them some experience from it. If you really want to use it, then, as Imafuji-sensei said, you need your sensei's permission to try it out, but first you need to train your left hand more than your right to help you swing your shinai effectively.
I have trained my hands much more than I was supposed, and lately I can do katate wazas suburis with one hand by myself due of my right shoulder hurting a bit, just because I depended my right hand too much, and it made me think of trying to use my left hand more to balance out the strength.
My main goal is to do nito ryu, when I get to be 3rd dan, and that's why I wanted to learn Jodan no Kamae to train not only my left I'm a righty , but to improve my katate attacks with both hands. My sensei also knows it, and that's why I'm training my hands more, especially the left.

Jodan no Kamae Ultimate Collection
In kendo, your kamae is more than just how you stand and hold your sword. Each kamae has its own personality and peculiarities. In this article we are taking a look at the distinctive and dramatic jodan-no-kamae. With its unmistakeable silhouette and powerful reach this stance is very attractive to many kendoka, but requires intense dedication and a deep undersanding of kendo to make it effective. Jodan is immediately recogniseable by the sword held aloft above the head.
Kendo Kamae – Jodan
Thank you Martin for giving me two topics to write about this week. This has not been the case and Kendoinfo has received close to comments. It is also worth bearing in mind that the topic is kendo, not tameshigiri. The whole theme of my post was that zanshin is vital to kendo, and awareness of your opponent is the essence of zanshin. Keeping these points out of the equation, our key disagreement is over the correct zanshin for hiki waza. Furikaburi means to swing up, not keep up, and jodan requires a great deal of hand foot coordination that goes beyond pointing your shinai skywards. This can result in the point being rescinded by the shinpan.
This page is dedicated for all kendoist who are interested in jodan no kamae. Please feel free to comment or give related links you know! The primary feature of Jodan is that the position of the shinai is held up high, and the very strong striking power and potential that comes from this position. These aspects must be focused on. This is the first article in a series by Dave on his experience of learning and fighting in Jodan. Over the past couple of years I have been lucky enough to meet and get some instruction from Yamanaka Sensei, Toda Sensei and Chiba Sensei all famous Japanese 8th Dan Jodan players whose knowledge on the subject I have only scratched the surface of. Anyway here goes, there is a lot said about having to adopt a different attitude when you decide to play Jodan, you have to be more imposing and arrogant, that you must never go backwards, these are all true to some extent but they are also true if you choose to play Chudan.
