Taira Shinken 1964 also copied designs from Yun Heui-byeong 1948

In the last article, I notified that Taira Shinken copied important parts of text from Yun’s research published in 1948.

Besides text, Taira also copied designs from Yun. Here I would like to particularly point out the makiwara design. The reason is that people rebuilt the makiwara design of Taira in the belief that it is a representative invention of Taira himself. However, this is not the case. Rather, Taira has copied it almost one-to-one, as you can see in the details below.
