Mastering Eishin Ryu Iaido Samurai Sword, Volume 6
On this DVD the Samurai Sword is the subject tackled by Masayuki Shimabukuro. He teaches 10 Zen Nippon Kendo Renmei Seitei katas, which originated from ancient Iaido. Since these katas have been adapted from other popular styles those who want to compete in Kendo tournaments will benefit from this knowledge. Shimabukuro is the chairman of the Nippon Kobudo Jikishin-Kai, and has spent much of his life passing on ancient traditions of the Japanese martial arts to the world.
Masayuki Shimabukuro was born in March 1948 in Osaka, Japan. He studied Judo, Karate-do and Okinawan weapons as a teenager. His sword training began in 1975. Master Shimabukuro received the rank of 8th dan in Muso Jikiden Eishin-Ryu Iaido and Shito-Ryu Karate-do, and holds the coveted title of Hanshi in both Iaido and Karate-do. Digitally remastered from the original Century/Panther Productions instructional video.
