Mats Hjelm - Short Sword Fighting Techniques
Buy and Download >
The theme for March/April will be Kukishin-ryu Kodachi and Taijutsu.
The short sword carried by all warriors have several names depending on the mounting, how it was carried or displayed. Kodachi, Shoto or Wakizashi for example. We will study all aspects of the short sword/knife together with our Taijutsu.
“The Kodachi has been neglected by most Budo-ka and masters since it was a weapon carried by the higher ranked officials.” – Hatsumi Soke (March 2003).
Keiko no Shudai 2022-2
There is only three Kamae and three Kata in the Kukishin-ryu Kodachijutsu. But we will bring in the Bujinkan Budo-taijutsu Sanshin no Kata, Kihon-happo and much more to make the training less boring and more interesting.
I will teach this theme on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 19:00 to 21:00 at Kaigozan Dojo the following dates March 1, 3, 10, 22, 29, 31 and April 7. And then finish with a mini seminar on Saturday April 9'th at 13:00-17:00. The training fee on Tuesdays & Thursdays is included for all members of Kaigozan Dojo. For all others it is 100 SEK. For the Saturday mini-seminar it is 200 SEK and you get the DL-Video of the seminar for free.
