    Default Maniwa Nen Ryu: Sword Sparring

    If I'm not mistaken, the beginning of this clip, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bel3EpC26aQ, is sparring by Maniwa Nen Ryu. A ryu that's supposed to be even older than Katori Shinto Ryu, if I'm not wrong.

    Pity the clip is in a language I don't understand.

    Even if it looks like Maniwa Nen Ryû to me too. The speaker mentions that the "round sticks" (as he calls them) are from the Araki Ryû.

    Default les arts martiaux du jopon 4/12

    This video clip is number 4 of a 12 part series. The narrator in the video is trying to explain the various martials arts of japan and how some of them relate to each other. In the narration of part 3 he states that the sword was replaced in some instances by the wooden sword or bokken. In the start of part 4 he states that the bokken was very dangerous to use and was replaced with a more flexible wood sword in the ryu mentioned and that this ryu was the start of "modern" kendo. Or in other words those guys are practicing an early form of kendo. The samurai needed a safe way to practice swordsmanship. Kendo permited them to practice with out killing off their partner.

    It is Maniwa Nen-ryu. The film-maker, Michel Random, made literally hundreds of mistakes in his book/video. One of them was calling this the "art of the white sticks" of Araki-ryu.

    Jack,
    Thank you for bringing the links to our attention.
    Even with the film makers errors (which matter little to me as I don't speak French) what wonderful footage of Koryu and Gendai Budo.
    Regards
    Paul

    What an apt name for an erratically erroneous film-maker

    Default Photos and Film

    I have seen many many of the shots in that film in one my budo books, I think it might be from the Donn Draeger Classical Bujutsu/Budo books.

    Me no understand what came first...

    Do you recognise the kata half way through this clip? It looks like Tachi Otoshi no Midare but then goes a bit weird half way through....

    Is this book perhaps, Mr. Watson? It was released together with the film in 1977, by the same author.

    Yeh it looks like half is comprised of Tachi otoshi and the other half is shin shin...Not the Tachi otoshi no midare we are used to today. I personally haven't heard of this kata or of this variation in the current curriculum.

    Could be that Shiokawa Sensei (Shidachi in that kata) used some artistic license and put those two kata together for the embu. Either that or his mind slipped and he did the shin shin part accidentally. (can happen to anyone, even a Menkyo Kaiden )

    Default Hmm

    ..that's what I thought had happened. It looks pretty devastating against a sword going at full tilt.
