The Shards of Earth was a Crab Clan kata taught in the Hida Bushi school practiced entirely using a tetsubo or being unarmed. The Hida family teach their samurai to focus their chi like the earth, to become impregnable and strong. This kata however took a different approach, teaching them to focus their chi on a small stone or object at the beginning of the kata. When the bushi reached the end of the ritual he stroke at the stone with his tetsubo or fist, stopping merely a hairs breadth from the stone. Within seconds the stone should crumble into dust.
