  • A Single Blow in original Japanese?


    I once discovered the original japanese version of the documentary known as "A single Blow" on the Youtube Account of an user named oniazuma, i also downloaded it from youtube, but deleted it by mistake. Unfortunally the User deleted his account, and his new webpage does not feature the video anymore.

    It featured 2 or 3 additional scenes as well as a much better naration. Does anyone out there still has the original japanese version of the documentary?

        Hi Paul!

        Are you referring to the single 10 minute "Eiga Naoki documenrary"? I seem to remember this documentary being significantly longer.

          Hey Dervish!

          Sorry, just discovered on youtube that the 4 Part splitted version of the documentary is also no longer "on air" . Damn, when i checked for the english Version called "A Single Blow" or just "Kendo Eiga Documentary" on youtube a couple of month ago, it was even uploaded multiple times by different users... strange..

              Here has the original video, with English narration. They also have about 2 dozen other docos that I'd love to see. It's an org that makes NHK programming about Japan available to OS TV broadcasters. They might also sell to schools/educational institutions. But you might have to get chummy with your local community TV station and see if they can put in an application. Not likely to be cheap. I imagine you'd be purchasing not just the (large format?) tape but also the broadcast rights.

              Still, you'd be a bloody legend if you got it.
