    Default Life and Legacy of Donn F Draeger

    Many here will know the name of Donn F Draeger (1922 - 1982), some of you personally.

    For those who do not : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donn_F._Draeger


    Last week in Tokyo, a group of his close associates got together to present a number of insights into the man.

    Here is the first by Hunter "Chip" Armstrong (International Hoplology Society):

    There will be more videos in the next few weeks.

    There is also a Facebook page entitled The Life and Legacy of Donn F Draeger

    Good morning Everyone.,
    Here is some rare footage of the first Nihon Kobudo Kyokai Embu (c.1979) ( It shows Donn F Draeger with Naginata at 8:18 approx) with Otake Sensei showing amazing Nukitsuke no Ken at 8:30 approx, plus a host of famous names from the immediate Post War period.
