Resources on Seme (攻め)

Here are some resources below on seme (攻め) in English listed by Books, Associations, Authors, Websites, Videos and Quotes on Seme.  For those unfamiliar with the term:

  • Seme as defined in the dictionary is “an attack, the offensive, assault, or siege”. In Kendo, it can also be defined as pressure;  that is, to pressure the opponent before the attack.AUSKF

  • Put plainly, seme is the process of searching for a means to break the deadlock of kamae in order to put yourself in the advantageous situation where an opportunity to execute a valid strike presents itself.Oya Minoru

I will likely update this page as I come across more resources.  Some resources in Japanese are listed over here.
