View Full Version : hojojutsu once more
12-06-2001, 01:52 AM
As my question seems to have disappeared with the last re-construction of this site, I pose it once more, hoping to receive some more information:
Who can shed a light on hojojutsu? I know a bit about the place it holds in the Shinto Musoyu jo-curriculum, but that's about it.
domo arigato gozaimashita!

Don Angier, of Yanagi-ryu is one of the most knowledgable instructors anywhere on the art of hojojutsu. He has two video tapes available on the subject, that I'd recommend to anyone interested. Keep in mind that Yanagi-ryu may be quite different than Shinto Muso-ryu, but I think the tapes also serve as a great introduction to the art, and give a little glimpse into it's elegance and depth of sophistication as well as it's practical use and function.
These tapes as well as many others are available from Bugei Trading Co.

I was looking around the internet and came accross a book on the subject if you are interested Christiaan.
The title of the book is Shokai Hojo and is around the bottom of the page. Hope this helps.

Mr. Lee, do you have links to sites that may carry those other books? I myself am quite interested in this subject as well, and would like to add to my library perhaps. Additionally, if you have the time, I would love to hear a more indepth review of the book by Mizugoshi Hiro. :toast:

Thank you very much!
It happened I came across some jodo-pictures with one showing a hojojutsu-tie at Rick Polland's site www.jodo.com (http://www.jodo.com). Maybe, if he is around, he is able to shed some light on the subject as well...
