Video/DVD: "Sugano Shihan Sword System 1 DVD" YouTube Trailer
Posted 10/22/2012 7:58pm [from Charn Pennewaert]

Seiichi Sugano shihan studied weapons, particularly the bokken, as part of his training with O-sensei. Sugano Shihan's weapons instruction was organic and free from a any kind of formal kata. At the Shin Do Kan dojo in Newport Beach, California (where Sugano Shihan would teach twice a year), he would pair off the students and have them practice basic sword patterns with the bokken designed to develop correct body positioning (hanmi), timing, and increased awareness of distance. There five fundemental patterns (icho no ken, ni no ken, san no ken, yon no ken, and go no ken) presented over the course of two volumes (taped several years apart). These two volumes (available on DVD or download) are available now from the Shin do Kan Aikido dojo in California.
