This years theme was Roppô Kuji + Bûdô no Kiso – (Bujinkan sword basics & advanced).

In August 2004 he came to visit us in Stockholm, Sweden to give a seminar on this year’s Bujinkan theme, Roppô Kuji no Biken. He taught sword, unarmed defence, and the rokushakubô. Tim explained what would work and what probably would not work in a real situation. The theme of this seminar was very much Shinken-gata, true or real combat methods.

He taught ukemi with sword, basic kamae, basic drawing and cutting, and many sword techniques… Engetsu Sappô, Nito-ryû, Hiryû-ken, Tsuki-komi, Tsuki-iri, Datô no ken, Kochô-gaeshi and many more.

He also taught Mutô-dori, stopping someone to use his sword, how to use the sword if stopped and much more. Also the six foot staff technique Gohô was covered in detail.

The first hours of Sunday morning is not on this video, it is a separate video titled “Kihon Happo Video” wich also includes the x-tra training class he did right before this seminar in Kaigozan Dojo.

Recorded in Stockholm, Sweden August 2004

Who is Tim Bathurst?

Good question… Tim is a senior student of Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi, living and training in Tokyo Japan. After a few visits starting in 1990, Tim moved to Japan in 1997 and is one of the few foreigners to have earned the title of Shihan while living in Japan. Presently graded at Judan-ka (10th Dan-Fire level…13th Dan to some.)

Tim has never been in the Military, never served as a police officer, never done personal security, never been to war… Actually, the only thing he has really done is train with the best of the Bujinkan for the last dozen years or so.

If you\’ve been to Japan in the last 5 years or so you would have seen Tim at Hatsumi sensei\’s or Nagato sensei\’s dojos. If you\’re unlucky you will also have to put up with him translating from Japanese into his own Australian version of English… and occasionally into rather poor Spanish.

One of the huge benefits of training for so long in Japan is that Tim has learnt his weapons technique as well as his Taijutsu directly from the Grandmaster and the top Master students of the Art.
