  • Hozoin-ryu Takada-Ha Sojutsu Kobudo Embu Taikai Video


    One of the more well-known Japanese spear schools, the Nara-based Hozoin-ryu Takada-ha Sojutsu style, demonstrating at the 2010 Kobudo Embu Taikai held at the Budokan. Founded around 1560 by the monk Hōzōin Kakuzenbō In-ei. A practitioner of swordsmanship and another style of spear, he was inspired one night seeing the reflection of the moon to create a spear with a cross-shaped spearhead instead of the traditional straight spearhead. This is the distinctive weapon of the Hozoin-ryu.

      The final day of the 15th WKC featured the men's team event. There were many hard fought matches in the pools, and then the ensuing tournament stage, but eventually the field was narrowed down to the US versus Korea in one semifinal, and Hungary versus Japan in the other. Japan defeated Hungary without too much difficulty, but they will be very satisfied with their first third placing. The United States took Korea to the wire, and Chris Yang scored what must be considered one of the gutsiest ippon men strikes ever seen. In the end it was Korea that prevailed though, and the stage was set for yet another Japan versus Korea grudge match. The atmosphere was tense, and the matches were controversial. In the end...

      Saturday, 26th May in Novara, another beautiful day for the womens individual and teams events at the 15th WKC. The tournament ended in another Japan versus Korea final in the teams and individuals events. Japan won again in the teams, but it was an extremely close match.

Brazil and Germany were third, and well done to them. The Australian women came so close to a third placing only to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory against the Brazilians....

      The 15th WKC kicked off in Novara, Italy, today with the Mens Individual event. Novara skies were blue, but that mattered little to the thousands who packed into the modern sporting venue. The air was thick with tension from the outset, and the round-robin matches saw a number of upsets, and very exciting matches. Predictably, the Italian fighters received their fair share of raucous support from the locals as they demonstrated the fruits of their intensive build up for the event. By the end of the day, the final four had been whittled down to two Koreans and two Japanese. In...
