The first instructional DVD from one of Japan's foremost koryu (school of traditional martial art). Founded in 1582, Tendo Ryu is now 437 years old. This instructional is taught by current headmaster Yasuko Kimura. Authentic naginata instruction is rare and this is direct from the source!
Length: 65 min.
This video is more of a general overview of the art, and while it does have some specific instruction, overall it is thin on content. Public embu videos available online have a broader range of techniques demonstrated. The video features Kimura soke, her daughter, and her grandson and seems intended to lay the groundwork for succession rather than promote the art. Interesting only if you have a vested interest in the art.
