    Default Tatsumi-ryu hyoho

    Hi All!
    Anyone has a clue how the fukuro-shinai used in Tatsumi-ryu Tojutsu looks like.

    Thanks and Greetings!

    Hi Sven. I have a book that shows some pictures of Tatsumi Ryu guys using fukuro shinai, and as far as I can tell theirs look similar to the Nen Ryu or Kashima Shinto Ryu models. White leather that completely incases the bamboo, stitch running down the entire length, and what appears to be a padded tsuba. If you want to get information straight from the source, try contacting Liam Keeley, a certified Tatsumi Ryu instructor who maintains a website here. The few times I've contacted him he's been very helpful.

    My opinion is, in all likelihood, worth exactly what you are paying for it.

    Sven, the book is the first volume of Nihon Kenjutsu. If you go to the futago trader website, and click on the category "kenjutsu," it will be one of the first things to pop up. Very interesting set of books with chapters on a lot of the famous schools of swordsmanship; the first volume includes Katori, Kashima Shinto, Yagyu Shinkage, Tatsumi, and others, while the second volume includes Jikishinkage (the premier style of Japanese swordsmanship ), Nen, Nakanishi-ha Itto, and others. Sadly I don't know enough kanji to read the articles, but the pictures are still excellent.
