    Message From Negishi-ryu Honbu

    Negishi-ryu shuriken are not sold commercially. Imitations are occasionally being sold both in Japan and abroad. Buyer beware!

    Shinkage-ryu Curriculum

    I believe that Yagyu Shinkage-ryu was/is primarily a school of swordsmanship. The desho doesn't list any other techniques, such as yawara or weapons. The bushi of the sengoku-jidai rarely studied one...

    Edo-line Yagyu Shingan-ryu

    Gentlemen, allow me to make sense of all this.



    Headmaster Koyama Samon moved to Edo (Tokyo) later in life and operated a dojo there for 18 years. Life in Japanís capital (Edo) was far...

    Hello Dean,

    It is difficult to say if this is Negishi-ryu, but I suspect it is. Negishi ryu evolved from Ganritsu-ryu, which used a long, slender design. Traditional Negishi-ryu shuriken are...

    Negishi-ryu shuriken are pointed at one end only. They are not produced commercially, they need to be order-made to spec. Headmaster Saito has his shuriken made abroad. He binds the grip himself in...

    Better late than never!

    I realize this thread is more than a few years old, but I'll offer my 2 cents anyway. The late headmaster of Yagyu Shingan-ryu Taijutsu, Mutoh Masao, received Menkyo Kaiden in Owari Yagyu...

    Thanks for your effort. Very informative. This year has marked the death of both Yagyu Nobuharu (Shinkage-ryu) and Hoshi Kunio (Shingan-ryu).

    I got caught-up in a lengthy discussion today with senior instructors of the Edo-line, concerning the founder of YSR. As you all know, there are two distinct lines of YSR, Sendai (Heiho) and Edo...

    OK. I have just finished cross-referencing all of this with Phil Hinshelwood in Australia and also my contacts here in japan. I think it is safe to say that Hayato founded Yagyu Shingan-ryu. As...

    This is what I've been able to gather so far. I think it is already clear that Toda could not have been Hayato's teacher, as he died when Hayato was 5. If someone can provide dates for the other...

    Above question should read Koshiu (Ryoken) and Yagyu -- not Ushiu. Similar names... sorry!

  19. Ushiu and Yagyu

    Question regarding Ushiu and Yagyu. You have them both listed as teachers of Shinkage-ryu. What was their relationship, if any? Did Hayato study the same art from both of them?

    Koyama Samon
