    Steve, actually you got me there!

    In that sense Higo ryu taijutsu no kata is no different than kime no kata. The only way it would differ is that it would not be an official Kodokan kata and would probably not be recognized as a judo kata (while it actually is).

    Now I am confused, I will ponder on this for a while.

    I have done so and I must say that due to the fact that the kata has not been part of Kodokan judo it could still do a lot of good to steer jujutsupractitioners into a direction away from the influence of judo organizations and towards independence.

    best,

    Johan Smits

    There are two websites that refer the school as Shinto Rikugo-ryu. One is freebudo.com, which Shiigi Keibun studied this school. http://www.freebudo.com/Ichi%20Gi%20Do.htm This website mentions the name 4 times.

    The other website is the kukishinden Tenshin Hyoho website. It says that Tastsuta Yasuichiro studied Shinto Rikugo-ryu art as well. http://www.shinjin.co.jp/kuki/hyoho/history06_e.htm It only mentions it one time. I went to the Japanese version and the hiragana shows as しんとうりくごうりゅう http://www.shinjin.co.jp/kuki/hyoho/history06.htm

    The only information that I can find on Shinto Rokugo-ryu/Shindo Rokugo-ryu is a Aikido based school founded ironically by a person with the name Noguchi (Noguchi Senryuken), but I think this was founded after WWII.

    Question 柔術教授書 虎の巻 龍の巻 Jujutsu Instruction Manual - Book of the Tiger, Book of the Dragon

    I recently dug up the following books, separately, by chance. I'm wondering if anyone has info on this gent and his dojo.

    深井子之吉 Fukai (Nenokichi? sp?) wrote a couple of books, 1st ed. 1911, published by 帝國尚武會 Teikoku Shoubukai, which is apparently the name of their dojo, too. He was the shihan.

    柔術教授書 虎の巻 Jujutsu Instruction Manual - Book of the Tiger
    柔術教授書 龍の巻 Jujutsu Instruction Manual - Book of the Dragon

    The books have a lot of 当身 striking, a range of self defense and fairly offensive moves. The books themselves look like they were not commercially published but rather were sold individually, perhaps to dojo members or subscribers, as there is a place for the member's name on the cover.

    The instructors were two brothers named Noguchi. Their father was involved in the 武徳会 Butokukai, and before that the family was perhaps involved in the Tokugawa bakufu military instruction system (haven't closely read the intro yet.)

    One is Noguchi Senryuken 野口潜龍軒, the founder of 神道六合流 Shinto Rokugo Ryu / Noguchi Ryu Jujutsu, who also in 1911 wrote the book 柔術修業秘法 Jujutsu Shuugyou Hihou - Secret Jujutsu Practice Methods.
    http://www.budovideos.com/shop/custo...cat=289&page=3
    "This very rare Jujutsu text was written in 1912 - the year that the author formed Shinto Rokugo Ryu - a school of Jujutsu based on 6 older schools. The emphasis in this ryu was to make learning easier and faster. With a focus on atemi, this book shows how to build a striking dummy. The rarity of this book is due to the fact that it was only sold to exclusive members.

    Contents include:
    -Jujutsu shugyo
    -Techniques
    -Secret of jujutsu shugyo
    -Knowledge of gokashu-ho
    -Noguchi style jujutsu
    -And more "

    Noguchi Senryuken is also listed on a Japanese website as 帝國尚武會創始者 自稱8段 ('Teikoku Shoubukai Founder / self-professed 8th dan')
    http://tbbird.asablo.jp/blog/2006/09/10/517864
    also fought, and lost to, Ad Santel, the famous wrestler, in Tokyo in 1915.

    (Source: Japan Times, 3 Mar 1921, 5; Japan Times, 25 May 1921, 8.
    Ad Santel defeated Senryuken Noguchi - 11/30/15)

    Shinto Rokugo Ryu and Noguchi Ryu seemingly disappeared with these gents.

    Anyone have anything else on these gents and their arts, dojos?

    If I feel the urge to crown myself Grandmaster Soke of something, this one looks like a good place to start!

    Thanks,

    Yes, thanks, I saw this after I opened this new topic, but there really wasn't much info in the other.
