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!
