Does anyone know if there are any Yamane-ryu Bo katas that can be seen or downloaded on-line?

Thanks!

Choun No kun can be found on YouTube.com. Just do a search.

while the second video is listed as a goju system, Choun No Kun was created by Chinen, the founder of Yamani Ryu Kobudo

I dont know much about Kubudo, but are the demos and kata always done so slow? From a technical standpoint it looked ok other than the foot stabbing movements and low line attacks.

Many Bo kata contain foot stabbing or geden tsuki movements. they are actually very very effective. For an experiment, try tapping the top of your foot with a bo. It doesnt feel too good. Also alot of low thrusts are followed by a upward flick of the bo which indicates a thrust between the legs of the opponent followed by a groin shot .

I know it would be rather unpleasant and the flick is a decent way to cover your tracks but to me it is too "iffy." It would seem to me that someones moving foot would be a rather hard target to hit under pressure. Also it would seem to me that your upper gate is very poorly protected at this time. If the opponent had a stick the could hit you hard in the face while you try to stab the foot.

Keep in mind that Weapon kata are open to interpretation just as much as empty handed kata. While some people only view weapon bunkai as weapon vs weapon, others may view it as weapon vs empty hand or some other combination. You also need to take into consideration the movements leading up to the low thrust. It is very possibe, ( and I am not looking at the video right now , but I am quite familiar with it) , that the moves leading up to the low thrust lead the opponent into leaving himself open down low.
Also, in many cases a low thrust can be seen as a preparation for a sand flick. Many okinawan kata are interpreted to be taking place on a beach. Sunakake is the technique of using a bo, or eku to flick sand into the face of your opponent. Choun no Kun and many other bo kata contain this move in some form or another. While the practicality may not seem immediately evident to one person, it is quite apparent to someone else.

Thanks for helping with those.
I am a complete novice at Bo and still working on the first kata and I don't even know what it is called! But I do know it is Yamane-ryu. I did not see the kata among any of the ones there.
The first move of it is cat stance, right foot forward with bottom of bo forward (as if striking shin area?).

Wouldnt it be easier to "scoop" the sand with your foot? To me its all about simplicity while keeping the tightest defense possible. As far as striking someone who is low or foced to go low, I would use something a little more broad like slapping the stick across him rather than poking him with it.
