These three waza are ippondori, shihonage and obiotoshi. They were recorded as a quick reference guide for my student’s phone, but I decided to upload them so people would have an idea of what Hoshu Dojo is instructing.
No audio was recorded for this film.
Tom Groendal and Ben Lew perform the first 5 techniques in the Seitei Curriculum stipulated by the All Japan Kendo Federation. This was filmed in Vancouver, Canada by members of www.hoshudojo.com
Unfortunately, my (TG) right calf was cramping and my posture sucks, and the production values are not great, but hopefully this will serve as a useful reminder for people interested in Jo.
In this video I perform the tandoku dosa (solo exercises) of the Seitei Jodo Curriculum of the All Japan Kendo Federation (ZNKF).
I have made this video as a learning tool for the callouts (gorei) for those wishing to lead these practices.
The words for these subtitles were taken directly from the Japanese ZNKF federation manual “全日本剣道連盟杖道 (解説)” printed in 2008.
