The following techniques are demonstrated in this video:
Language: Japanese with English subtitles
Run Time: 60 min.
As a long-time budo practitioner who studied Daito-ryu for a couple of years in Japan, I can attest to the fact that this video is a solid representation of the core techniques of Daito-ryu.
This video does not really seek to teach the techniques or coach one in the details of the delivery or application of the techniques but rather just shows the techniques from the kata being performed from various angles.
It is clear, well lit and professionally shot. A solid representation of Tokimune Takeda's tradition as presented by Arisawa Gunpachi, a teacher who trained for decades under the headmaster and was one of the senior teachers from the Hokkaido tradition.
This second part of the three part series details the third teaching, from a variety of situations. The video is "live action", followed up by slow motion repeats, and some from a variety of angles. The video is standard definition 480p, but with a 4k UHD DVD player, with the ability to upscale, it looks really good. I recommend this DVD, as it has a lot to offer. No fluff, all action, from start to finish. As well produced as the First part of the series. Nothing but great stuff to put into your martial arts toolbox!
Found these videos to be well presented and comprehensive covering the 118 techniques of the "Hidden Mokuroku" or the first level of a four level Daito Ryu set of techniques. Excellent delivery of product.
