Bujinkan DVD Series 10: Budo of Elegance with Masaaki Hatsumi
In the spring of 2004, Masaaki Hatsumi held a special seminar on the 33rd anniversary of his teacher Toshitsugu Takamatsu in Tokyo. Many Taketomo, mainly high-ranking younger brothers, came from all over the world. A living oral tradition breathed new life into the Bujinkan martial arts among the high-ranking younger brothers.
