    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Tokyo budokan re-opened, loads of JMA deom vids

    Nice article by Guillaume Erard on his site can be found here.

    It includes some nice demo videos of:

    Kyudo (don't know what org)
    Judo Goshin kata (two met police guys, presume kodokan/IJF)
    Jukendo (bayonet)
    Karate (WKF)
    Shorinji Kempo
    Aikido (aikikai)
    Iaido (znkr)
    Naginata
    Hojutsu (old-timee guns)

    The video quality is quite good is all of them.

    ^ I was gonna say the same thing. I like watching and hearing the bogu strikes into throws.

    First time I've seen video of hojutsu. I wonder if they're actually shooting musket balls in that crowded place?

    I thought the Jukendo was pretty cool, but I could barely watch the naginatado.

    I don't think so. But I've been at the Nippon Budokan for that stuff and those matchlocks sound like they're firing cannons.

    Shorinji Kempo was nice. I liked the Nag, I've dabbled in it so I've an idea what they were about. I quite enjoyed the Karate, very crisp, and I've seen that kata before so the deconstruction was pretty much what I expected. Iaido was nice.

    Judo. Buffering. OK, Aikido. Buffering. Still, thanks for posting as I can re-visit those.

    I'm pretty sure I'm subscribed to his Thread on youtube. I really should pay more attention. :-)

    It had less to do with the actual naginata material as it did the music.

    I guessed that that was a consideration.
