Re: Rolling with a sword?

The method that I have put forth is true for at least one Edo period koryu art - ono ha itto ryu. Though samurai at the time had become more administrators than warriors, duels still occurred. Duels in which the need to understand how to roll property while armed was needed, as seen by curriculum on how to roll while wearing swords.
