This technique is incorporated through the simultaneous use of the user's martial arts to catch a blade that is keen to all five hundred styles of kenjutsu, however Hadome halts an opponent's blade differently.

While the user of this technique makes use of their martial arts to catch the blade between their palms, and stopping a downward karatake strike with the palms of the hands before the blade strikes the wrists or the skull.

When done in this manner, a swordsman becomes able to catch an opponent's sword, while still maintaining the fight in their favor by snapping the blade and using the broken blade to possibly catch the opponent off-guard; injuring them if the blade is used to impale them, actually hit its mark.

Misc

  • Hadachi - (刃断, Sword Break) Yet another variation of the Hadome developed by Yonjimbo, he halts an opponent's blade between the thumb and fingers of his right hand and then, finding the sword's weakest point, snaps the blade with his hand.
