I'm tying to find some good video footage of Tamura Shihan on line - web search not coming up with much - any pointers guys and gals?

I don't know for the clips, but if you want to practice with him, he will be at Montreal next year, in May.

That's all what i found in the web. However, there is more available in P2P (downloading it is legally dubious, so i'm not going to ellaborate more in a public forum).

If you don't mind dropping some coin, there's excellent footage of Tamura and many other prominent shihan on the NY Aikikai 30th annivesary tape, see NY 30th (http://www.nyaikikai.com/videos.asp#)

But as a previous note pointed out, the best thing is to train with him. What he does is subtle, and really can't be best conveyed via recorded images. And if you're lucky, he'll come over an block your technique :freaky:

Have fun and train hard.

I think there are a bunch of clips on the Aikido FAQ site but don't know if he is on there.

Can't help you with that and it's a shame. I wish there was more media of him. He really is something else.

As if by magic one has appeared on Youtube:


The Tissier and Endo Shihan clips on there are also VERY cool. Great site.
