The Claw Strikes Deep was a Shadowlands kata that maximized the ability of obsidian claws to penetrate flesh, but at some cost to accuracy and the ability to penetrate armor. It involved careful timing and required getting rather closer to the target than was ordinarily the case when fighting with this weapon. It required fighting with the claws only partially extended. Once they penetrated the gaps in the targer's armor or otherwise hook into the flesh, the claws were then extended in a rough thrust, dramatically deepening the wound inflicted. [1]
