Very nice. Thanks for posting. Any ideas about the year this footage was shot?

Thank you for uploading. I had seen the first section but only a fleeting glimpse.

Is that Jiro Ohtsuka doing sanbon kumite right at the end?

I was thinking 60's for when it was shot, but I'm not sure. And yes that's a really long video with Jiro Ohtsuka (and no sound). I could upload that, but I'm not sure what the family would think of that.

Thanks for posting up the film. It is interesting to see a bit more of the tantodori and tachidori section.

Take another look at is his seishan at 3.58 sec onwards...

We've touch on the arm leg relationship before. Did he switch back and forth over the years before concluding or just changed one time? Who knows.

I suspect it is just a mistake, he corrects it with an extra step. Ohgami sensei explains about this in the article Seisan - Seishan. Funakoshi type seishan kata (shotokan and wado) use the hands one way, most of the other styles are opposite way.

I like that he loses his balance at the end of Chinto and does it again.

Proving, for me anyway, that humility is a greater strength than braggadocio.
