    Videos of Kage & Samidare kata

    Aloha:

    I'm looking for videos of the complete SMR Kage & Samidare kata. I can find bits & pieces, but nothing comprehensive. Does anyone have some clips squirreled away?

    Many thanks!

    Ha! Yes, Brian, although the one I usually wear is 18 kt. But I have a plain old steel band on another watch I wear often enough that I'd notice any sign of corrosion. And I have the advantage of...

    Yes, that is ironic, Neil. Also interesting is that out MJER Sensei has our nukitsuke performed pretty much like the right photo, although perhaps with slightly less zanshin for the kohai.

    I very much agree with Paul. A Web-site is definitely NOT the place to learn any details about a ryuha.

    Go visit a dojo if you want more information than what you can pick up via a quick search.

    Why would you expect that ANY ryuha would list &/or explain its waza on-line? To learn, you would join a dojo in which your sensei will teach you what you need to know.
