New video with sensei YAMADA Haruyoshi has been added to our online "video dojo" !

A new video has been added with YAMADA Haruyoshi sensei, performing Niipapou kata and bunkai with the assistance of Mr Takayama Masahiko (6th Dan, Goju Ryu). This video was shot at Niagara Falls, Canada. This event was organised from the 7th up to the 14th of May 1999.

 

 

New video with o-sensei TANI Chojiro has been added to our online "video dojo" !

A new video has been added up online and is available in our "video dojo" with o-sensei TANI Chojiro, founder of Shukokai, performing "Chinto" kata in congratulating YAMADA Haruyoshi sensei for the achievement of his 8th Dan, on June 22nd, 1991.

It seems that TANI sensei wanted to express another, deeper sense of kata, with traditional clothes & the mask. It's called an "artistic view" of the kata, like No play (theater). Throughout this, sometimes, we can enjoy the expression of joy, anger, sadness, amusement, happiness & spirit fighting like human life.

It seems that Tani sensei wanted to try to show something, in the deep sense of the traditional Budo Spirit by these katas.

A very rare and very interesting video of Shukokai history!
