    This Has been posted before. This is more of a Koryu version by Kaminaga Shigemi.

    Kata literally means form. These techniques are straight out of the densho and are replicated through the often vague and abstract descriptions.

    These two kata in question have many layers and are presented in the most basic form. They teach many concepts you need to work through and understand.


    If you still don't understand what im saying... these kata are a framework and not real techniques. You practice them, understand the concept and then derive verations.

    (If you have your own interpretation of Koto-ryu then post the videos. Im interested to see what they look like)

    Kata still have a level crispness, contact and TECHNIQUE. What that was, was not technique. I don't even know what to describe that as.

    Kaminaga's Dojo. Even though very formalized, that is more what KATA should look like.

    I still have my critique of that vid, especailly the unrealistic punching. But when you talk about Kata from a Ko-ryu scroll, that is more what is should look like.

    Edit: The second video Fitz posted has some good demo of teachniques though.

    Thats really sad then, I suggest you get more training.

    Which Ryu-ha is Jan-kenjutsu from?

    Kanji Kudasi?

    As for the Miller videos, I guess if you are talking about an old fat guy, that koku was not completely terrible up until the stupid butt push (definitely wasn't a punch). Yokuto just plain sucked for anybody.

    Couldn't see the others, but I've seen the Manaka video's before (not impressed). The kaminaga video is so much better than anything I've seen come out of the B-Kan.

    Would that be JanKenPonjutsu? Or maybe scissors is inferior, so they eliminated it from their style so it Rock Paper jutsu. So if I play nothing but paper, I'll win?
