    Used a little google fu, but couldn't come up with much on Lovret's Tenshin ryu. Apparently they are shy due to lots of past hammering.
    Did come up with one video though. ... tenshin ryu kumitachi

    Thanks Paul, This is what I was looking for.

    Though it only shows one kata, what do you guys think of the techniques?

    I think that they are using long bokken. No word yet on the paper cutting.

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

    Sorry, Cliff... I was trying to find a way to diplomatically say "I wonder which system they've watched a video or two of and decided to try to copy?"

    It is only one short kumitachi, so it is almost impossible to form any sort of opinion. However, considering the fact that uchidachi is supposed to be a senior level instructor in the art, I am very unimpressed with the quality of his movement.

    Are you saying this based on factual knowledge of tenshin-ryu or are you just assuming they train the way less, ah, nuveau schools do? In the aikiken I practice, there is no uchi / shi breakdown and both partners take turns. We also do all our kata three steps apart like these guys. Just sayin'.

    Neither. I'm saying that based on the fact that uchidachi is identified as being William Maren, who is described on their web site as follows ...
    "He is now a student and instructor of the Tenshin-ryu, a style of Japanese swordsmanship, and the Yamate-ryu, a system of aikijutsu. Mr. Maren holds senior level license in both of these arts."

    While I don't know what a 'senior level license' is in their art, I would expect him to move with a sword much better than he shows in the brief movements of the aforementioned kumitachi.

    Indeed. Laboured.

    Is there some kind of rule that the higher the dodgy factor in a Ryu, the better their dojo is?

    Okay, understood.
