I worked on a new video this weekend, an Iaido demonstration during the 60th Obon Festival in San Jose, California.

My good friend James Campbell was one of the Academy instructors during my uchideshi experience at Seibukan Jujutsu Hombu Dojo in Monterey. Later, Jamie opened his own dojo, Yosokan, and currently teaches KoKoDo Jujutsu under Yasuhiro Irie. He is also a devoted sword practitioner, with high ranks in several sword styles, but primarily teaches Muso Shinden Fudo Ikken Ryu Battojutsu founded by Machida Kenshinsai of Nodashi, Japan.

We actually have two videos to see: Jamie’s Rokudan in Seibukan Jujutsu, and his sword demonstration during the 60th Obon Festival. New music for the Iaido segment. I hope you enjoy!

I have to say as a 'sword guy' that I really prefer less edited video. I like to take in all of someone's movements as opposed to just the cut itself. Good Iai has speed power and stillness and there is something to appreciate in all three if you have the eyes to see. ;) It's kind of like watching a snowboard video where you only see them spin and never see them land.

If only the whole world had educated eyes, they would appreciate the beauty of the UFC and Iaido!
