Hayashi Kunio sensei





Hayashi Kunio (Aichi Pref., Kendo Hanshi 8 dan) is a sensei whom I have never met but from whatI've seen he has wonderful Kendo (as you would expect) and there are a lot of videos of him. Including this one, which is an excerpt from one of Kendo Jidai magazine's free DVDs.

I linked this video video on the NSK Facebook page previously, of Hayashi sensei vs a Kyoshi 8 dan sensei.

When you go on Youtube you'll see lots of related videos of him, you just have to recognise the kanji for his name:

林   邦夫  範士  八段

Hayashi      Kunio       Hanshi           8 dan


This video above has an interesting drill that combines kirikaeshi format with suriage waza practice. We tried it last Wednesday at training and it was interesting but tricky. I think we'll try it again but a bit slower. Have a look at the video and see what you can glean from it.
