Swallow Flight: Six Forms of the Tachi (Enpi Rokka no Tachi) Edition

Shinkage-ryu Kenjutsu: Swallow Flight Tachi - Instructional Video

Explore the invisible techniques of the sword derived from the Yagyu school. Learn the hidden winning methods of Shinkage-ryu.

The essence of "Suiki's Teachings" left by the founder of Shinkage-ryu, Kamiizumi Ise-no-kami, emphasizes achieving a state of "marobashi" — a condition without resistance. However, this state is not simply about surrendering to the flow; it involves actively creating the flow itself.

This ideal is expounded in Suiki's teachings, exemplified in the forms of the Tachi explained in this DVD, "Swallow Flight Six Forms of the Tachi."

This Tachi:

  • Based on Yagyu, the source of Shinkage-ryu
  • Consists of six forms of the Tachi, practiced sequentially (renzoku-tsukai)
  • Refines the "consciousness" and "handling of body and sword" in Shinkage-ryu through wooden sword training.

Each Tachi reveals hidden "winning techniques," meticulously explained for clarity on not just the form but also the reasoning behind each movement.

Shinkage-ryu, founded by sword saint Kamiizumi Ise-no-kami in the late Sengoku period, gained renown under the second generation, Yagyu Munenori, who became the instructor for the Tokugawa Shogunate family. It is renowned as one of Japan's representative martial arts, frequently depicted in movies, novels, and television.

This DVD is recommended for those interested in:

  • Exploring the rational manipulation of body and sword in martial arts.
  • Understanding what constitutes "free and natural techniques" in martial arts.
