  • Articles about jodo, SMR jojutsu, connected schools (like jutte, kusarigama, etc.)


    There are a lot of articles, interviews, books in kendo.
    I would like to read some history, stories, articles, interviews, etc. in jodo/jojutsu topic.
    Interviews with senseis would be especially interesting!
    Do you know any good resources?
    I found an interesting one from Andy Watson sensei on kenshi247, but sadly no follow up for years.

    Thank you all if you can contribute with a link, suggestion or anything

          Sei Ryu Kai originated in Tokyo, established by Nishioka Sensei. Listed them first as thats where I started my SMR (was straight ZNKR kendo/jo/iai practitioner before that).
