1. The 2010 update featuring the elements of the International Shinkendo Federation and Aikibujutsu Tanren Kenkyukai.

    A quick overview of the facets of solo, paired, and live-bladed sword techniques and aikido throws, arresting, and tanto techniques. Main shoot was shot within 3 hours.

    Special thanks to Toshishiro Obata Sensei and the Honbu (World Headquarters) Dojo in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, CA.

    I trained with Obata Sensei for 8 years, and wanted to use the filming techniques I have been learning for the martial art I've been learning.

    Moving shots filmed with the Panasonic HMC150 mounted on a Steadicam Pilot.
    2 Canon 7Ds with a Tamron 17-50 and Canon 70-200 2.8 were used in a tripod/handheld/slider combination.
