Hi all! How exactly does seigan translate? Is it more a concept than something physical?
I'm assuming you're referring to the kamae. In that case seigan is: .

(sei) is correct, right.

(gan) is eye(s).

I'm sure someone knows a double meaning for the term, but as far as I know, it's called that because you point the sword at your opponent's eyes.
