Jukendo & Tankendo Demonstration - Nippon Budokan Kagamibiraki 2018


Jukendo & Tankendo Demonstration during the 2018 Kagamibiraki & Budo Hajime, at the Nippon Budokan.

--- Introduction ---
Jukendo & Tankendo - The art of the Japanese bayonet.
We’ll see different combats of Tankendo and Jukendo. These two martial arts established during the Taisho period, and focus on the usage of the bayonet, and the kodachi, the short sword.
Compared to the Tsuki-Waza in Jukendo which starts from a distance, in Tankendo the emphasis lies on directly jumping into the opponent's bosom, breaking the distance while controlling his technique and body.

The Kagamibiraki is a traditional ceremony which translates to opening the mirror (symbolically).
Taking its roots in the Shogunate, it is strongly linked to Budo practice and it is natural that the Budo Hajime (first practice of the year) is celebrated at the same time.

At the Nippon Budokan, the ceremony is held at the beginning of January and consists in:
- The Kagamibiraki, with a historical reconstruction (in armor).
- Budo Demonstrations (by the 9 official Budo).
- Budo Hajime (first practice of the year, all practitioners present can practice).
- The Oshiruko kai. “Oshiruko” is a traditional and popular sweet azuki bean paste soup with mochi (which symbolize the sharing of the mochi that was broken before during the ceremony).

Old WWII Kendo Jukendo Bayonet Footage

Black and white footage of WWII Japanese Navy Soldiers practicing Bayonet and Sword fencing.

You can see them wearing the half armour. The body armour Dou and Tare only covers the left half of the body.

But interesting, even the swordsman also wears the half-armour. Perhaps it's due to convenience? By right, the swordsman should be using a standard full armour.
