    Chan Bara popularly known as 'chambara' (contraction of 'chanchan'; onomatopoeic sound of two swords collide, and 'barabara', the meat being cut up), is the specific name with which is known to this genre. In fact, the chanbara is a subgenre within jidaigeki or Japanese period drama. The term refers to jidaigeki film that tells a story that happens in a historical period, while chambara exclusively used to define action movie with samurais. It is also a sport since 1973 in japan and is called by it's nickname 'Spochan' and now practiced over the world.
