This is a unique set of videos, Sugano Sensei explaining his sword system through the use of 5 Patterns. The set comes in two discs, filmed some time apart. Disc 1 covers the first three movements, Ichi no ken, Ni no ken and San no ken. The last two movements, Yon no ken & Go no ken, plus an extensive demonstration of many of the foundation sword training exercises developed by Sugano Sensei over 40 years of instruction are outlined in Disc 2. While the growth of the 5 Patterns continues to evolve, these two discs give a wonderful insight into Sensei's thinking, at that time, and can provide an excellent starting point for your journey of better understanding Aikido through sword movement.
