    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    This guy CLAIMS he learned how to use the Japanese Katana from Shorin Ryu Karate.

    Hello, i am new here and i wanted to post a video but i seem to have trouble doing so. Anyway, when I figure it out, the video I am supposed to post is about a guy on facebook who claims thatbhe learned how to use the katana in Shorin Ryu Karate. Question. Does karate (Shorin Ryu to be precise) teach students how to use the japanese sword?

    The question is not, does Shorin Ryu Karate teach the sword. The question is, does the sword teach Shorin Ryu!

    O.o

    It would appear that some schools teach Japanese sword
    http://www.seiyo-shorinryu.com/samurai-weapons

    Whether their actual technique is any good, I will leave to some of our actual Japanese sword practitioners here.



    Though I am going to guess by the amount of extreme karate type flailing that they do, as opposed to traditional Kenjutsu kata, that the answer is not really.

    I am going to go out on a limb here and say that with the number of children watching in the second video and the child performing nonsense in the first one, there isn't any serious (read: legitimate)sword or weapon instruction going on.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I said I was going out on a limb.
    I could be wrong and have no understanding of Japanese Sword Play what so ever, despite thinking I have a very basic understanding.

    I'm sure if you humble yourself and beg his forgiveness Master Foster will forgive you. Unless he is having a teen moment of course then you are screwed. Clearly though he is legit. He even uses the feared and deadly reverse grip known for its lethality and badassery from the numerous places it has appeared in video games, comic books and bad hollywood films.

    On a more serious note, here is what authentic Japanese sword work looks like.


    Here is what a fight looks like between two actually trained Japanese swordsmen




    Notice the lack of spinning flailing sword work.
