70000 views for akban colloquiums

Previous AKBAN Colloquiums were watched, in AKBAN’s YouTube channel, more then 70,000 views by almost 15,000 viewers at an average view time of 18 minutes. We take these astounding numbers as a token of increased interest in Traditional, combat oriented, Ninjutsu and will video and translate this event also.
Take a look at our previous Colloquiums and the Application Requirements here.
The Sixth Colloquium will deal with the way various Ryuha in Takamatsu-den deal with resistance. We will use Kata from main systems to show that some systems meet resistance with stringer resistance, some ‘go with the flow’ while others combine these two modes into an intricate reaction.

The Kata chosen to exemplify each Ryu are:

  1. Oh Gyaku – From Koto Ryu
  2. Renyo – From Gyokku Ryu
  3. Koshi ori – From Takagi Yoshin Ryu
  4. Fuki (Fukan) – From Fudo Ryu
  5. Ryu fu – From Kukishinden Ryu

During the preceding week we will work with these kata to prepare the ground for a thorough exploration in the Colloquium.
See you there,
