Surprised to find video of this Martial Art

I would say that this is the most accurate form of the ancient art of Jikishin Kage Ryu that I have seen. Though the video has a kind of home-made aspect to it, the forms show decisiveness and the explanations are succinct. I was surprised to see Taijutsu, Martial Art demos coming from Kenjyutsu.

I was told that this is the start of all Martial Arts practice in Japan. So, I suppose Karate and Aikido were derived from the defensive postures of Kenjutsu.

It serves as a good glimpse of the various aspects of the ancient origins of Martial Art in Japan.
