How to do the 3 and 4 Kumi Tachi Effectively
In this video, Sergey Utrobin Sensei of Aikido Iwama Ryu Moscow demonstrates Kumi Tachi 3 and 4 Kumi Tachi with four variations (henka).
Utrobin Sensei starts with san (3) no Kumi Tachi and 4 Kumi Tachi.
Utrobin Sensei alternates between Tachi (cut) henka and a Tachi Dori (sword take) as henka.
There are 4 henka (variations) on the number 4 Kumi Tachi in this video:
- Kote Gaeshi (timeline 0:37 secs)
- Hiji Jime (timeline 0:50 secs)
- Yokomen (timeline 0:30 secs)
- Tsuki (timeline 0:46 secs)
Sergey Utrobin Sensei is a 5th Dan Iwama Ryu Sensei that regularly goes to Iwama to train as an uchi deshi.
Utrobin Sensei is also the Russia’s current Knife Fighting National champion (three years in a row).
If you visit Moscow I highly recommend that you visit the Dubrovka Dojo and train with Iwama Ryu students there.
