Re: Sagawa Yukiyoshi, Masaru Takahashi en Adem Training in Daito-ryu

An interesting side note to the breath training mentioned here - as far back as 2008 Dan Harden insisted that there were breathing exercises in the Sagawa line (there are earlier examples, I know, but this is the one that came up first in search), in opposition to no small amount of sceptacism.

And when this article appears in current times - there is hardly a ripple of controversy. It's interesting to see how much things have changed.


Well it makes perfect sense that Sagawa's Daito ryu had breath training in it. He certainly brought in a lot of other stuff from Jikishinkage ryu.
