Ryuseiken Batto-do (The Way of the Dragon Star Sword) was founded by master swordsman Mitsuhiro Saruta, Sensei in Sakai City, Japan in the late 1980's. Compiling techniques from several schools of Iaido, Batto-do and Kendo Saruta Sensei formulated a complete sword martial art that balances the necessary elements of forms, sparring and test cutting. This new sword art quickly became prominent in the sword community in Japan and has spread to several other countries around the world.

Shihan John McGraugh by far is one of the greatest instructors i have had the honor of training under in my 15 years of martial arts training. His sword techniques are unmatched and where perfected in Japan. Let me say it my honest opinion his has great technique and i have seen people compete in the US open of martial arts. This video is a must buy for any martial artist out there and for the price without a doubt you won't be disappointed.
