    Default Anyone familiar with this kata?

    I found this kata on youtube and thought I would see if anyone was familiar with the ryu from which it came.

    Then again - I could be wrong.

    No flashy hakama but there are a number of similarities.

    yep, posted by the same guy, same dojo. sigh. beware the tasuki of death! (cord used to tie back the sleeves. which doesn't, wrong kind of sleeves) check out the 'Tiger Claw' team choreography from the Disney World event. Cool stuff, very athletic, lots of strength and discipline. Not sword.

    I like that he ties on the tasuki (super quick), and then pulls his sleeves back down past his elbows, thus making moot what little point the tasuki may have had.

    Hmm, looks like CRS - "Cocker Rage Syndrome". The attack starts often while they're sleeping. Their pupils dilate. They attack quickly and with no apparent control whatsoever. They're confused and unresponsive as it happens and are often glazed and disoriented once it is finished...

    Maybe the hair is to hide the dilated pupils...

    But I thought it was relatively rare and only happened in a couple dog breeds...

    Default 剣舞 or 武踏 ?

    It looks like the sword dance rather than iai.

    If you want to strike your opponent, you should let him strike at you.
    If your opponent strikes at you, he himself will already have been struck.

    I see a great deal of difference between the first two and the last link posted. The last link is actually quite beautiful and there is an obvious knowledge of how to use the sword.
