Great Review by matthew rogers

Many may be attracted to buying this video who have heard that this art was one of the major sword schools practised by Sokaku Takeda.

Reputedly, Sokaku spent some time as a live-in student of Kenkichi Sakakibara, headmaster of the Jikishinkage Ryu and considered to be one of the most famous and skilled swordsmen of the era.

It came as a shock to me to see the kata themselves. This style was practised by many famous duelists in the 19th and so I expected to see a very pragmatic set of kata performed with much emphasize on attack rather than counters.

Instead I found a series of very ascetic and enigmatic kata where the true intention of many of the movements is not readily understandable by an outsider to the ryuha.

Still the kata are themselves fascinating, as are the breathing, stepping and seemingly meditative movements. It also features a rather chilling kiai!

This is a very interesting ryu however unlike many of the videos from the Nihon-no-Kobudo series I really felt the need for English subtitles and further explanation in order to get a deeper understanding of the significance of what I was viewing.
