Hi All!
I received today the new cultura martialis, the best martial art magazine in German language(actually the only worth buying!). There was a preview for the next magazine on the last page. There will be an article about Sho sho ryu, a ryu that claims to be in 68. generation and was founded around early Nara-period. The ryu is now located in Morioka, northern Japan. I was unable to find anything on the internet. Anyone ever heard of them or has detailed information?

Many Thanks. I missed to chek my copy of Serge Mols jujutsu book! Thanks for the link!

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can purchase any books on Shosho ryu in Japanese? I can't seem to locate any books online.

thank you,

Mr. Gruzanski,

A quick search didn't bring up much dealing with Shoshō Ryū specifically, but I know there's an excellent entry on the tradition in Yokose's book, Nihon no Kobudō, which provides a great survey of a variety of koryū.

You can find the book here:


Check around though (i.e., Kinokuniya, BudoVideos, or check with Russ Ebert, as he runs a great online shop - and is a really, really nice guy to boot), as this might not be the best price available (I was lucky enough to get mine in Japan a few years ago, so avoided the hassle of shipping & handling - maybe see if anyone you know is traveling over soon?)

Hope this helps!
