Does anyone know of any connection of the Shinto Jinen Ryu founded by Konishi Yasuhiro and the Yagyu Shingan Ryu Heiho.

Matt White.

Hi Matt,

Yes, there appears to be a connection. According to Yagyu Shingan Ryu lineage records, Konishi Yasuhiro is recorded as a Shihan (Menkyo Kaiden) in Yagyu Shingan Ryu Heiho. His teacher was Headmaster Sato Itsumi a student of Hoshi Hikojuro Kuniyuki.
I don't know if the Shihan is Konishi Yasuhiro (1893 - 1983) or his son Yasuhiro Tekehiro Konishi (1931 - ). If my guess is correct I'd say the later.

Also, perhaps it would be advantageous to ask those in authority within the Shinto Jinen Ryu of Konishi Sensei background.

Wow. This is new to me! But it's quite cool if true. Konishi was quite eclectic.
