    Default Mijin style

    From the research that i have done, the Mijin style is a sub-style of kenjutsu. It emphasizes power and speed; It concentrates on leaping and running attacks. The most famous Mijin maneuver is the Soaring Lark stroke, a leaping ground to sky attack. The founder is Negishi Tokaku. the full name may be Mijin Ryu kenjutsu but i may be wrong.

    Apparently, they're connected to the Koga Ninja...

    What puzzles me is that they calim that either from thier "Ninja" school came Daito-Ryu Aikijutsu. This has my flags up, or does the list mean they took stuff from Daito-Ryu?

    At any rate, I'm not liking the look of this.

    Peace.

    I typed "mijin-ryu" into google and got a couple sites claiming that Mijin-ryu was a descendent of TSKSR, including this Iaido Newsletter from Aug '93:
    http://listserv.uoguelph.ca/cgi-bin/...-l&T=0&P=18694
    Search the document for "Mijin", it's mentioned near the end. It doesn't give any other info, though.

    Well, now we have two websites claiming each as it's descendant. Well, honestly, the link you provided seems more reasonable then a group of "Ninja" teaching it.

    Peace.

    I'd suggest if it appears in a book that Kim Taylor was involved in writing it's worth regarding it as real, however, that doesnt mean that a school claiming to teach it now is.

    Whatever gets pulled up, I find this quote (from Scott's link:http://sportsfansusa.com/kogakaiden/...88336715088E36) fascinating (in a very humorous way):

    The Seika ryu is a ryu of living spirit and power that transforms it's energy into pure existence to accomplished its goals of self-defense and/or offense. Members of this ryu are known to have been masters of such great skills of the Mijin ryu, who are directly connected to the Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto ryu, which are masters of stopping live weapons with bare hands

    Default Mijin Style

    I found out about the Mijin style from internet sources. here is a link to one of the websites. http://www.pvv.ntnu.no/~leirbakk/rpg.../kenjutsu.html

    Sorry, but that site seems to be a little RPGish. Jumping up in a sword fight and coming down? Remind sme of Samurai X. Most duels with swords were done in seconds - As for war time, the main weapon was GENERALLY the Spear. And why would a samurai in a fight stand in water knee deep?

    A special suio technique is to stand knee-deep in water with the blade beneath the surface of the water. The swordsman will strike from this watery position, potentially executing a very effective and extremely surprising strike, as the water will 'bend' the reflection of the blade while it is under water, and any opponent will have difficulty determining the position of the blade until it breaks the water's surface.
    Peace.

    Yes, actually, it *IS* an RPG. If you make your way to the index page, you'll find that page is a supplement for a game.
