Techniques include situations involving up to five opponents attacking together.

featuring Masayuki Shimabukuro and Leonard J. Pellman 1995

Just $19.95 (plus shipping) or $17.95 for members.  Ships Priority Mail unless otherwise requested.

Volume 5 presents detailed instruction in the performance of the ten Tachi-uchi no Kurai of Eishin-Ryu. These are partner exercises (often called katachi) for practicing the attack-and-defense techniques embodied in the waza in Volumes 1 through 4. The katachi are performed with bokken (wooden swords) to develop the technique, timing and footwork needed to defend against full-speed, full-power attacks, and are shown actual speed, as well as slow-motion, from different camera angles, so all details can be observed and practiced.

Just $19.95 (plus shipping) or $17.95 for members.  Ships Priority Mail unless otherwise requested.

Volume 6 contains ten Seitei Iai Katachi (standardized techniques). These standardized techniques have been adopted by the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) of the United States, the Kendo Federation, and other organizations as the basic techniques to be performed when competing in iaido tournaments. Since Shimabukuro Shihan established the tournament rules for the AAU, the method of performance in this video has been adopted as the standard of performance in AAU events.
