One of the most outstanding techniques of the samurai is the ability to catch swords with their bare hands. They will block the opponent’s sword by clapping at the right time and the blade will fit into the palm of their hand. This is a very difficult technique and high risk requires the user to have very skilled skills. It was also discussed for a long time on whether samurai actually used this ability in combat. Its effectiveness is exempt from discussion but the fact is no one has verified this.
In martial arts, there are also some techniques that do not deal when the opponent uses his sword to attack. But this technique of samurai warriors is completely different. In fact, katanas (Japanese swords) are so sharp that they can cut bones, so it is almost impossible to catch the blade in the palm of your hand.
