Iaido Clips

Postby Lexxorcist » Tue Jul 11, 2006 5:58 pm

I thought these might be of interest to somebody. I don't know who the guy is. The clips have no sound, they appear to have been filmed on an old super-8 camera.

**** EDIT****

I've added 2 more longer clips. These aren't Iaido, I think they're kendo but I'll leave that to the experts. These ones are more interesting to watch, they're about 20mb each though.

Whats makes you think the last 2 (?) are kendo?

Actually they are aikido, and include aiki-ken and jo-dori.... and very good mate, nice find.

The rest are all part of MJER iaijutsu.
I won't bore you with the names of each of the waza, but there's no kendo in there dude.

Nice post though, as these are koryu waza, and differ slightly from some of the modern seitei gata iai that is taught as part of the BKA iaido syllabus.

I really couldn't tell the difference. It had "kendo saito" in the original file names but files are often named wrongly. Glad you liked them. :D

There is an aikido master called Saito who is a phenom. The footage is old, but it does bare a resemblance to him. I'll have another look.

Hi, to those on the forum!
As my first post, I thought it may as well be here.
The above videos are almost certainly "Muso Shinden Ryu Iaido" performed by Nagae Matasaburo, 8th Dan Iaido, 7th Dan Kendo.

here is the full 20 minute video (you'll need the Divx 5 codec)

I have a few of his video's, he is very graceful and obviously very skillful.

Thankyou, I'll have a look at that. I'm not a practicioner (as you probably gathered) but those two look very skillful to me and they're great to watch.

***Edit*** Before i download this, is this from the last 2 clips or the first 12? The last 2 (13 and 14) are the ones that really interest me.

The 20 minute video is probably a collation of the first 12, although I only downloaded the first 2.

The video I have is about 26 minutes long.
So is slightly longer than the link I provided.
So it may be of the first 12 kata, but also include several more.
Its also much better quality than those 12.

I ended up downloading it anyway, and it's much appreciated. What I'd really like though is more of the guys in those last 2 clips I added (after the edit). If you know where I could find them, I'd be most grateful.

I don't seem to have any of the 2 men doing kata in the last clip, but I have a friend who has quite a collection and will ask him.
Get back to you on this.

The last 2 are completely different to the first 12. Did no one read my posts?

I know they are. They're the clips I'm most interested in though, so I asked if Oni could get hold of any with those 2 guys. I imagine, like the other clips, they're part of a full video. I can't find any myself. I found this website though, but would still like some more video. http://www.saitosensei.com/

Cheers styx. These are the first clips i've seen of Iaido or any japanese sword art (other than in movies). All I knew about Iaido was there's a lot of drawing involved as being able to draw and attack quickly are vital with kat vs kat. I never imagined it'd be so interesting to watch.
