About Tendō-ryū: Founded in 1581 (Tenshō 9) by Saito Hangan Denkibo, a disciple of Tsukahara Bokuden, Tendō-ryū is a comprehensive martial art encompassing techniques with a wide array of weapons, including naginata, swords, two swords, canes, kodachi, tanto, and kusarigama. Its forms are regarded as serious martial contests, characterized by dynamic techniques that adapt to and exploit opponents' movements through precise pushing, pulling, and thrusting with the naginata. Notable features include open hips and powerful leg crossings, enhancing the art's effectiveness and distinctiveness.

Bruce Mitchell
Limited appeal

This video is more of a general overview of the art, and while it does have some specific instruction, overall it is thin on content. Public embu videos available online have a broader range of techniques demonstrated. The video features Kimura soke, her daughter, and her grandson and seems intended to lay the groundwork for succession rather than promote the art. Interesting only if you have a vested interest in the art.

Than you for the sincere review, Bruce!
