What is the proper form when using the Takenata?

The correct grip is essential to getting the most power out of your tool. Wrap your thumb and forefinger around opposite sides of the handle and squeeze them together slightly. Your other three fingers should sit lightly on the base of the handle. Relax your palm and swing from a high point in a downward direction, dropping your shoulder to increase momentum. When making contact with the material you intend to cut, slightly flick your wrist. This posture will help you safely use the Takenata and refrain from tiring more quickly or getting blisters from improper grip.
