    Manaka Sensei,

    Hatsumi Sensei has declared 2001 the year of Gyokko Ryu. With that in mind, I had a question regarding the kamae of this ryu-ha. I was hoping that you would be able to help sort out which kamae are correct for Gyokko Ryu. My notes have the following kamae:

    Sandan No Kamae
    1. Migi Ichimonji No Kamae
    2. Hidari Ichimonji No Kamae
    3. Migi Hichou No Kamae
    4. Hidari Hichou No Kamae
    5. Migi Juumonji No Kamae
    6. Hidari Juumonji No Kamae

    Sanpo Hiden Kamae
    1. Jouryaku Kamae
    a. Ten Ryaku Uchuu Gasshou No Kamae
    2. Chuuryaku Kamae
    a. Chi Ryaku Fuuten Goshin Gasshou No Kamae
    3. Geryaku Kamae
    a. Han-o Han-eki Gasshou Mizu-Juji No Kamae

    Other Kamae
    1. Hanin No Kamae
    2. Soko No Kamae
    3. Ryuuhou No Kamae
    4. Asuka No Kamae
    5. Tora Hen Komochi Tora No Kamae
    6. Doko No Kamae
    7. Ton Ryu No Kamae

    Any assistance you can provide to help me identify the structure and kamae in Gyokko Ryu would be greatly appreciated.

    There are only three fundamental kamae in Gyokko Ryu: Ichimonji, Jumonji and Hicho.

    Your reply to the first poster's question made me curious; what exactly are the Tenryaku Uchu Gassho, Futen Goshin Gassho, and Han-o Han-eki Mizu-Juji Gassho?

    Thanks for your time.

    When beginning the techniques of the Jo, Chu or Geryaku scrolls of Gyokko Ryu, one makes these In with the fingers to create the proper feeling.
