The strength of Yari – advantages and disadvantages

Posted on Categories Uncategorized

Slowly, but steadily, the seminar on which the students of 02052012051628jari0987.jpgBujinkan Macedonia tackle the secrets of combat with a spear (yari), became traditional.

Every year instructor Igor Dovezenski teaches the art of Sojutsu (spear combat), discovering new techniques, ways and strategies during the usage of this weapon. So, this year, greater interest will be devoted to the advantages and disadvantages of the yari, through practice of the traditional katas.

„The school Shinden Fudo ryu Dakentaijutsu uses the following weapons: Yari (spear), Ono (war axe), O Tsuchi (big hammer), Tachi (sword) and Naginata. The legend says that one night the demon (Tengu) came to a dream to the founder of the art and taught him how to fight with Yari. These techniques are considered to be the greatest secret of the school even today.“

On this seminar all students of the dojo Bujinkan Macedonia / Taiyou e no Michi can participate.
