Hi Hugh
This is more what Graham was looking for
Of course this being a very early film it doesn't refute the statement that he didn't teach sword throughout his career. In light of what you now know- I would suggest you watch starting at about 4:00 and when you get to about 4:08 when Yamada starts moving with a sword; watch in stop action.
Lovely video. Straight to my collection. Nice.
