Ed Lomax Shihan - Tasmania 2002 Seminar


This movie was filmed in 2002 in Tasmania during a seminar taught by Australian Shihan Ed Lomax with Tasmanian Shihan Duncan Stewart, when the Bujinkan theme for the year was Hontai Takagi Yoshin Ryu Jutaijutsu. It contains:

  • A ‘warm-up’ master class on the Kihon Happo no Kata
  • The Omote Gata - 13 kata
  • The Ura Gata - 3 kata
  • The Eri Jime Gata - 8 kata
  • Bits of the Sabaki Gata
  • Bits of the Tai no Kata

In addition, there is a 20 minute interview with Ed covering topics such as the difference between Takagi Yoshin Ryu and the Hontai Takagi Yoshin Ryu, the godan test, the progression of the Bujinkan Dojo in Japan and the west over the last 20 years and many interesting anecdotes.

At the time this movie was filmed, Ed was living in Japan and studying full time with Hatsumi Soke. It has been passed around between instructors but Ed has now kindly allowed us to make it available to anyone interested.
