Taisha-ryu Kenjutsu Sydney – 25/01/2015

Today in the dojo.

Notice how Go-san is able to stay in a low kamae pretty much throughout this series of photos of part of a kata while I’m not. I’m going to Yastushiro in March. Have to be much better by then.

Here are a few shots from my first day – I was terrible. Taisha-ryu being a koryu style that was created during the Sengoku Jidai for use on 16th century battlefields is very different to anything I’d studied before in my twelve years of iaido and kenjutsu – believe me, it’s harder than it looks in these pictures.
