Bujinkan Kenjutsu
Deleted_
Aisatsu,
I have a minor question. What ryu does Bujinkan draw its kenjutsu from? Is it Togakure Ryu?

From that (Togakure-ryû), yes - and also from Kukishinden-ryû. And there's some in/from Shindenfudô-ryû AFAIK.

What about Koto ryu I thought there was some sword work in there as well.

From what I understand there is sword in just about every Ryu Ha (it was the common weapon of the time) but the Kukishinden Ryu is (from what I have been told) "the best" from what we have. Togakure Ryu offers "solves" for complex situations as well as "tricks" and strategies to winning.

I have seen footage of Sword Schools and they are very impressive when executed and I would not want to be on the receiving end of that! But I do believe if we dedicated ourselves to mainly sword than we could be just as devastating (IMO)

You are right.

This is an interesting notion! Could you perhaps clarify this thought a bit more?

The key here - I suspect - is in your term "strong, full, living sword art" but this might be understood differently.

This is some really excellent advice Danny has given. There is a warning that should be heeded. Both Yagyu Shinkage Ryu and especially Katori Shinto Ryu are very complex schools that require a real commitment and are not for the casual student want to learn some sword. Otake sensei is one of the best if not the best sword teacher in Japan and the last time I checked he wants a 15 year commitment from the students he admits into the school.By that I mean being at his dojo every week year in and year out. If you do have your heart set on learning kenjutsu and top notch kenjutsu at that then go there! Katori Shinto Ryu kata is very dynamic and according to both Ellis Amdur and Meik Skoss, neither are students of TSKSR, it comes the closest to any ryu in Japan of recreating the feel of battle field sword play. It is also a good school for yari and naginata and if you are into the esoteric. In my next life I think I will relocate to Narita.
