    Default Koryu demonstrations & events in Japan

    Ladies and gents,

    I have a ticket to the upcoming Nippon Budo Festival (details below) that admits two people. My girlfriend is being fickle and it would be a shame to have the second person admission go to waste. If anybody would like to join me, please send me a PM. There is a chance more tickets/spots are available, but as they are not in my possession, I don't know for sure.

    I've put a number of videos from this event on my YouTube page. The three koryu (Katori Shinto Ryu, Takenouchi Ryu, Yo Ryu) are all up as well as a few of the gendai videos. Enjoy.

    Default Embu: 33rd Japan Kobudo Demonstration

    YouTube user Kenzenjapan posted a video featuring snippets from the 33rd Japan Kobudo Demonstration at the Budokan.

    Default Tendo Ryu

    definately Tendo Ryu
    primarily known for Naginata-jutsu, but lots of other elements including paired Kodachi
    very distinctive footwork too in the naginata/sword paired forms - the retreat and advance before engagement

    Default Koryu demonstrations & events in Japan

    Hi!
    I'm living in Japan at the moment, Kyoto to be precise, and I'd like to watch some genuine koryu while I'm here. I know that there are festivals at which koryu is shown but how do I find out when and where? I'd really appreciate some pointers.

    May is the big month in Kyoto. Last I heard the dates for this year are something like...

    - May 2nd at the Butokuden has koryu in the morning followed by hours and hours of iai demonstrations

    - The 4th at Shimogamo Shrine. This one is koryu focused. There are two "stages" where embu are running concurrently, so sometimes you have to pick and choose which ryu you want to watch.

    - The 5th at Shiramine Shrine, which has many people from the day before. I believe in the morning there is also bunch of gendai budo demonstrations before the koryu embu. Good chance to see some things you missed the day before.

    For what it is worth,

    There's a big one coming up in mid-April in Asakusa, Tokyo, but I don't know the date or venue yet.

    The Asakusa demonstration is not so big, in my humble opinion. It is held in a medium sized tatami dojo and although there is enough space to have two groups demonstrate at once, there is very little room for spectators unfortunately. The demostration this year will take place at the Riverside Sports Center on April 17th from 11 to 2:30.

    As for our group, Asakusa is one of the places newer people would normally get to demonstrate at, as opposed to the Nippon Budokan, where everyone demonstrating is supposed to be chuden (or its equivalent) or above.

    The best thing about the Asakusa demonstration is that for the last 10 years or so there has been a special demonstration by one of the koryu school that lasts almost 30 minutes, complete with a lecture. It gives people a chance to see a deeper level of one school than at most of the other group demonstrations.

    I hope that helps.

    Regards,

    Ron Beaubien

    Not quite Kanto, but there is a kobudo embukai at Atsuta Jingu in Nagoya in early October.
