Ninjutsu sessions will resume in Sunday, 28/9/2014.

Meanwhile here is a very nicely done video of La Sala delle Armi, a HEMA group from Torino who analyse and practice ancient weapon Kata and Randori, just like we do. This one is about Lignitzer’s sword and buckler techniques, from Codex Danzig.

Every part of this short video follows the exact way we work difficult situations. First the problem or the attack is presented, then a counter attack, and then a counter to the counter.

The stances are exact Kukishinden ryu, the color of the shirts looks familiar and the accuracy and seriousness are what I like to see in a research oriented dojo. Kudos.
