Yamanni Ryu: Okinawan Bo-Jutsu DVD with Toshihiro Oshiro
Yamanni Ryu, the most aristocratic of the Okinawan weapon arts, was previously taught only to the most dedicated martial artists, by direct transmission, master to student. Preserved and nurtured as a cultural treasure of Okinawa by just four senior instructors, it is presented here for the first time since its creation by a member of this distinguished group. Includes all fundamental techniques and training methods of Yamanni Ryu, static and dynamic, as well as: kata, Suuji no Kun, Choun no Kun Sho and Dai, Ryubi no Kun and Kumi Bo combat techniques. A comprehensive and culturally significant treatment of an art previously spoken of, but very rarely seen.
