The Neko-te were usually used by the kunoichi (female ninja).
The weapon is strong iron fingernails that were fastened into leather bands fitted on the fingers, and resembled claws (not like that of of the shuko, ashiko) and were also dipped in poisons. The eyes were a favorite spot for slashing.
The Kakute were rings that the kunoichi wore that were dipped in poison. The rings could be made out of metals, and tempered wood.
The ninja would quietly strangle enemies with the ring stuck in their neck. It was far less messy then using a sword, and left very little evidence on how the victim died.
Te decidiste a tomar el camino del guerrero, has encontrado que la determinación, el coraje y una mente brillante son de lo que se está hecho, te has preguntado cuantas batallas faltan por librar y sin embargo aun cansado estas habido por continuar…
Kamae is not simply a place from where to start your techniques. It is your weapon.
When you hold a sword you don’t clutch it closely and pray your enemy stays away.
You point that mother fucker in his face and tell him that you are going to put it through his heart.
Kamae is the same thing. Don’t hide behind it. Not yet anyway.
It is your weapon. Put your hands up and know that you are going to crush him with those same hands. With that same spirit.
Kamae is a physical manifestation of your fighting spirit. You don’t fight with techniques. You fight with Kamae.
