For the kenjutsu posture which is frequently shortened by kendo practitioners to "gedan", see Gedan-no-kamae.

Gedan (下段), meaning roughly "lower level", is one of the three heights commonly referred to in Japanese martial arts. It refers specifically to the lower part of the body, from the belt on the karategi and below.
