Shindo Muso-Ryu Jodo  -- Two Volume Set

featuring Masayuki Shimabukuro and Leonard J. Pellman 1997

Save $4.00 -- Buy the complete set for only $35.90 (plus shipping) or $31.90 for members.  Ships Priority Mail unless otherwise requested.

All of the jo techniques in these videos are presented by Shimabukuro Masayuki Shihan, 8th dan and Hanshi. Attacking with the samurai sword (bokken) is Leonard Pellman Sensei, a kenshi (sword master) and senior disciple of Shimabukuro Shihan.

  One exciting feature of these videos is the opening sequence, in which Shimabukuro Shihan and Pellman Sensei recreate the legendary duel between Miyamoto Musashi (portrayed by Pellman Sensei) and Muso Gonnosuke (Shimabukuro Shihan) that established jojutsu as a legitimate martial art early in the 17th century. Of course, no one actually knows how the duel took place, so this reenactment is simply one possible scenario based upon analysis of the respective principles of jojutsu and Musashi's renowned Niten Ichi Ryu school of swordsmanship. To fully appreciate the excitement of this sequence, keep in mind that Pellman Sensei is attacking Shimabukuro Shihan with a shinken (live sword) at full speed and power!

Since practice with the jo and bokken dramatically improve one's handling of the sword, these videos are an excellent companion to the video series, Samurai Sword: Mastering Eishin-Ryu Iaijutsu and the book, Flashing Steel: Mastering Eishin-Ryu Swordsmanship.
