Tenshinryu Hyouho Battojutsu①

Tenshinryu Hyouho is a school of traditional Japanese Martial Arts which comprises various types of classical forms. It also includes battojutsu or the art of drawing the sword. These sword-drawing techniques are so quick that a swordsman has the ability to land a strike first even when being attacked from behind or being chased. Ayako Kisa visits the Tenshinryu Hyouho training center to see how these 400-year-old techniques, which were once used to guard the Shogun, are being passed down.

Sekiguchi Ryu Iai Battojutsu - 40th All Japan Kobudo Demonstration - 2017

SUBSCRIBE :

Sekiguchi Ryu Iai Battojutsu demonstration by Komehara Kameo Soke and his students during the 2017 40th all Japan Aikido Kobudo Demonstration at the Nippon Budokan.

-- Official presentation by the Kobudo association --
The Sekiguchiryu was founded by Sekiguchi Ujinari (1636-1716) and originates in the Sekiguchiryu Bujutsu.
Special in this sword art is a difficult technique called Tobi-Chigai-Kiri that describes the cutting while jumping up and reversing the position of the feet at the same time. This technique does not only exist with the Tachi (long sword) but also with Kotachi (short sword). There are also techniques in which the sword is handled with only one hand like in the Niten Ichiryu. And last but not leas, the adversary has to be overwhelmed with a loud, high and long yell.
