I may have mentioned before that the man who runs our dojo (though he doesn’t teach all the classes anymore) is ninth dan in Shorin-ryu karate and eighth dan in Yamanni-ryu kobudo, which is our weapons style. I don’t know what rank Shihan was when this video was filmed, but, well, just watch:
He didn’t hit anything there. He just moved the bo that fast.
Yah. This is the guy I study under.
