2017 MSR-MJER Japanese Sword: OKUDEN COURSE! The highest Sword level.
Dear Friends/Students, Here is an invitation to expand your knowledge of one of the highest levels of Iaido in the world! This level is rarely seen, much less taught to the average Iaido practitioner. And to make it even more unique, the course is a comparison of the two major styles of Iaido that commonly practice it today. I am excited to be beginning this new intensive series on the Japanese Sword on the Okuden level of both the Muso Shinden Ryu and the Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu! These two styles are two of the major styles of Iaido! This is an instructional series covering the complete kata of the Muso Shinden Ryu and Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu, step by step, while exploring and explaining the differences between the two styles. Each month I will cover 2 core kata and their applications from each style along with multiple variations. For Example: Lesson 1, Yukitsure, the first standing kata, has 3 different methods of stepping! The core has an avoiding step but there are also standing ground and entering steps! There are also 7 different methods of executing Yukitsure. Kasumi, the first squatting kata, can be done is several directions while pointing out the hidden movements in the sweeping sword along with applying the technique from a standing position.
The entire series will contain: Complete step by step instruction of all 21 Kata in both styles of Okuden. Comparison, Kata by Kata, of these 2 major styles. In depth look at all sword kihon. Ex. essential points (“SECRETS”) of the draw, cut, raising the sword, blood shaking and closing! All 10 of the Nihon Kendo Kata along with advanced tachi and kodachi waza Quick draw drills, to speed up the draw!
Won’t you join me for this exciting year of training! The training is open to all regardless of style or experience. Don’t worry about kneeling or squatting if you have any physical problems! I will teach alternate methods of applying the kata maintaining their original intention from standing or light squatting positions.
