    Default Koryu in Maryland?

    Good evening everyone....

    I'm looking for information regarding Koryu schools in the Maryland/DC/NoVA area. I haven't been successful in finding one as of yet, so if you know of one I would really appreciate the information.

    There's a lot of information for me to digest on this website, so I will look as I can and try to clarify exactly what I'm looking for.

    I have been studying Jujitsu here in baltimore for a while, and last year studied at the Shobukan dojo in DC, but it's a bit of a haul and as life goes, school and work must come before budo lest I be broke


    Hopefully I'll change that one day.

    The bottom line is that I want to see more of the traditional stuff than I have in the past; I want a better understanding of 'why' instead of 'how'.

    Thank you in advance!

    Greg Huff teaches Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaido in Woodbridge at his Eishinkai.

    I know there are several Shinto Muso Ryu Jo groups around the area. Check the Koryu.com website's info on SMR or check out Shelby's Jo Links Page.

    If you do a search of the forums I'm sure you will find plenty more stuff.

    Arrow Koryu ...

    Koryu covers a wide range of arts.

    Are you looking for something specific?

    Jujutsu? Kenjutsu? Naginata-jutsu?

    Then I would definately recommend you check out the aikimartialarts link above...John Goss is an excellent instructor, and his dojo is associated with Kondo K. Sensei of the Mainline tradition of Daito ryu aikijujutsu. I've trained there several times, and always had an excellent time, and learned a lot. Good group of folks.

    There are a few in this area.

    If you are particularly interested in late period jujutsu-type arts in the Baltimore area, I see that someone has already mentioned the Daito Ryu group. If you are interested in a jujutsu school that is more weapons-oriented, I'd recommend Masaki Ryu. One of Nawa Sensei's senior license holders is located in Northern Virginia.

    There are several Shindo Muso Ryu jo groups in the area including mine--the Hobyokan. We also have trainees in Jiki Shinkage Ryu and Yagyu Shinkage Ryu...but jujutsu-like techniques are minimal in these ryu.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for your note. I'm really interested in the Masaki Ryu Dojo and the Yagyu Shinkage Ryu dojo... How can I get in touch with these two?

    Thanks!!

    Post Masaki Ryu Hard To Enter -- "Invitation Only"

    The Masaki Ryu senior license holder has told me he is reluctant to take on new students. He does not advertise, nor does he want people to publish his contact information.

    Sorry.

    Rick Polland, near Annapolis, teaches some koryu-derived restraining waza that are used by the Japanese police. See http://www.jodo.com Unfortunately, he does not seem to teach jujutsu.

    This is understandable.
    If he ever does decide to take on new students, I would be interested in the opportunity. He can reach me at acwonders-at-comcast-dot-net.

    Thanks for the information.

    If you are really interested, you should try harder, and not on the Internet.

    What do you mean by 'try harder'? Why bug people that are not interested in taking on new students? I'm not out to annoy people, and I certainly do not want to do that because if they DO decide that they want new students, here I am sitting patiently and waiting. I am attempting to handle my questions mindfully; not in an invasive and possibly offensive way.

    And why NOT the Internet? Look at all the people I've discussed the topic with in the short period of two weeks. And where, if not the Internet, would you suggest I get information? This is the most widely pulled resource for information. Why forsake it?

    I don't understand why you would make such a statement.
