Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto ryu

Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu is the oldest surviving sword school in Japan. This is an excellent video of the current headmaster Otake Risuke and one of his senior students practicing kenjutsu kata. Note the different kamae and cutting style to kendo. Also, the kata are longer in duration than kendo kata and contain several attack and counter-attack sequences, not just one. b
