-Shihanbo shoden toriai
The shihanbo and kogusoku we are practicing now is a clear example of how the lines between armed and unarmed combat disappear in Takeuchi-ryu. Almost all of the toriai kata, for example, can be applied in the unarmed case against wrist grabs. We may do some examples of armed techniques applied to the unarmed case in the coming weeks as an aside.
