Complete SHINDENFUDO-RYU DAKENTAIJUTSU with MATS HJELM was filmed at the Bujinkan Kaigozan Dojo during early to the late fall of 2023. The theme was Shindenfudo-ryu Dakentaijutsu.

There is no verbal instructions on this film. Each technique is demonstrated several times from all angles. For more information about this ryu-ha click here! Please notice there is several sub-pages to this page with more information.

Techniques is demonstrated from several angles. There is no verbal instructions, we highly suggest you get the Unarmed Fighting Techniques of the Samurai book (what I call the Densho Book by Hatsumi Soke). This book have all Taijutsu techniques from all the Bujinkan ryu-ha described, it is a must have for all studying the Bujinkan arts.

HD quality, total playing time is 21minutes. 477 Mb (H.264, AAC, 1280x720p)

All 84 techniques (28 Kihon +56 Urawaza) from the book “Unarmed Fighting Techniques of the Samurai” by Masaaki Hatsumi is demonstrated.

Each technique is showed from different angles. There is no exact way to do any technique in the Bujinkan Dojo, there is wrong ways of doing the technique and there is several ways of doing the techniques correctly. You need to be aware of how the opponent is reacting and adjust accordingly. Bujinkan Dojo Budo Taijutsu and all the Ryuha is far from dogmatic and rigid systems. This is why every single time the technique is demonstrated it is a little different.
