I've been told there is some film of ST, but it's from his acrobatic days with the traveling circus...!!!
That was when he still had his front teeth. He was really into hand balancing(anything to impress the ladies). ;0)

Take Care,


Takeda Sokaku was an acrobate? I was not aware of this. I don't think I have read this before. What do you mean by hand balancing? Like balancing an object in your hand?

Could you name a book or other publication (Aikido Journal?) that mentions this or tells more about it?
