Rare demonstration of Nobuyoshi Tamura from April 1976
A rare 8mm film of scenes of a seminar taught by the late Nobuyoshi Tamura Sensei in April 1976. At this point, Tamura Sensei had already been in France for 12 years. His style is reminiscent of the taijutsu practiced at the Aikikai in the 1960s and 70s.
A rare 8mm film of scenes of a seminar taught by the late Nobuyoshi Tamura Sensei in April 1976. At this point, Tamura Sensei had already been in France for 12 years. His style is reminiscent of the taijutsu practiced at the Aikikai in the 1960s and 70s. The latter part of this film consists of a public demonstration containing sword kata and knife-taking techniques in which Tamura Sensei is partnered by Tiki Shewan Sensei.
