Chaku-gan (n.) A focus of view. (In Kendo it is of utmost importance which part of the opponent one looks at. The term metsuke is often used in place of chakugan. The best method is to focus on the opponent's eyes while keeping their entire body in view. To avoid telegraphing an intended strike do not look directly at the target area. One's gaze should not be focused too strongly on one particular point or one's view of the opponent will be limited.)[1]
