Samurai Aikijutsu
Toshishiro Obata Sensei

This classic video is still available. Master Swordsman Toshishiro Obata, demonstrates the techniques of Aikijutsu, a dynamic combat method developed by Samurai for close-quarters fighting. While focusing primarily on unarmed Aikijutsu, other aspects of Bugei are introduced, including: Taihojutsu (arresting techniques), Sojutsu (spearmanship), Tameshigiri (test cutting with a real sword), Bojutsu (long staff) and more. So far, this has been the most requested video to date!
