Direct Transmission of Kokui Yoshimi - Volume 1: Introduction

Learn the harmony of mind, technique, and body essential for martial artists.

Under the tutelage of Katori Shinto Ryu's Kokui Yoshimi, and mastering Aikido, Minoru Inaba pursued the exploration of Japanese martial arts from both the martial and cultural perspectives under the guidance of Shinto philosopher Chikahiko Ashizu at Meiji Jingu Shiseikan.

Over the years, Sensei Inaba has meticulously organized and compiled the martial arts scrolls "Shoden," "Chuden," and "Okuden" in three volumes, guiding practitioners towards achieving unity of mind, technique, and body as martial artists.

Kashima no tachi, dvd

Very good DVD for people who already practice Kashima. Kind of nice supplement and reminder but don’t full your self thinking that you can learn Kashima only from DVD.
