Please note: This article is about the Lion duel in which different types of weapons are handled.. For other uses of the term, please see The Gauntlet (disambiguation).

The Gauntlet was a uniquely Lion form of dueling that is derived from the normal kenjutsu duel. Contenders must show that they were able to handle different types of weapons that they might face in a battle. [1]

Tactics Edit

The purpose of the duel was to show the pure skill of the duelist. Since this style of duel was judged mostly on the appearance of one's attacks, many bushi tended to exaggerate their movements and to fancy maneuvers to impress the judges. [1]
