TAKAMATSUDEN RYU-HA: Shindenfudo-ryu, Koto-ryu and Gyokko-ryu (Information required)

If you’re really interested in digging into this, your best bet is to find people who care — a lot. It’s up to you to make conclusions from there.

Luckily, this has changed in the past few years and there are now some teachers who are willing to break tradition and teach these things openly. But in a Catch, those people tend to belong to a Takamatsuden school so you have to account for their bias. The more you try to follow one thread and unravel the tangle, the bigger the mess you make.

There is no doubt in my mind that Hatsumi Sensei possesses unusual power in his budo. When force is reflected back this is what is known in Japanese as Yamabiko, or Mountain Echo. On one hand, the linear fashion of Koto Ryu would indicate something of a Xing yi origin, although Xing yi itself is steeped in legend and the exact origin of that art are also unknown.

Are this stories true? The angling of the attacks can often be at 90 degrees to the opponent, so the timing and rhythm of the practitioner must be excellent in order to be successful. I am looking for more information about this so called “Takamatsuden Ryu-ha”. Ah, the Takamatsuden Spaghetti again Shindenfudo-ryu, Koto-ryu and Gyokko-ryu Information required.

Hi I believe he made-up Togakure-ryu, Shindenfudo-ryu, Koto-ryu and Gyokko-ryu with what he denssho had learned in China and then he combined with the lots of Densho that he collected during his live, but there are some people who affirm that Shindenfudo-ryu, Koto-ryu and Gyokko-ryu “can be traceable before Takamatsu”. I am trying to find some good -and real- information about other sources for Shindenfudo-ryu, Koto-ryu and Gyokko-ryu different from Toshitsugu Takamatsu.


Throughout his vast amount of written and video resources, Hatsumi Sensei has gradually released a large amount of material from the densho of the various Bujinkan schools.

So technically the Gyokko Ryu and therefore Gikan Ryu and Koto Ryu complement each other really well, and they form the basis of self defense in the Togakure Ryu too. This classic posture of one hand up, one hand down splitting heaven and earth is seen throughout Asian martial culture as a way of codifying Internal Power training.

Traditionally only the next soke was taught the Koto Ryu, whereas any student could have been taught the Gyokko Ryu. Like Gyokko Ryuit is thought to have originated from China, being brought to Japan by a monk called Chan Busho, but when, or even if this is true, remains a mystery. At the very least you will find a lot more people interested in the topic. Koto Ryu is a hard natured discipline, so it really requires conditioning and tough training. I do believe that they have more than one skeleton in the closet, so that is why I am looking for another branches out of the Takamatsu thing, but I have not got any of it yet.

Who says there are no more secrets left in martial arts???! In many martial traditions, regardless of whether they are Japanese or Chinese, the solo training exercises required to build Internal Power and Aiki are secret and passed down to only 1 or 2 students per generation. When talking to Bujinkan folks, you could try Paul Richardson who in my brief encounters with him, I found to be pretty straight shooting who can be reached through his website: I appreciate your contributions.

Gyokko Ryu Densho Takamatsuden Books

Any informtation before Takamatsu? So since then, the Koto Ryu and Rju Ryu, follow the same lineage. I believe he made-up Togakure-ryu, Shindenfudo-ryu, Koto-ryu and Gyokko-ryu with what he could had learned in China and then he combined with the lots of Densho that he collected during his live, but there are some people who affirm that Shindenfudo-ryu, Koto-ryu and Gyokko-ryu “can be traceable before Takamatsu”. Are Shindenfudo-ryu, Koto-ryu and Gyokko-ryu made-up by Toshitsugu Takamatsu or they can be traceable before him or by other sources?


The structure becomes dynamically stable so that applied force can either be distributed throughout the chain and dissipated or, at a higher level, simply reflected right back onto the opponent. Below are just a few of them, there are others.

Seriously, you might pick up some useful leads from people in this forum, but for the most part even those of us who at one point did care have stopped wasting energy on the matter. Do you know where can I find “non-Takamatsuden” information about Shindenfudo-ryu, Koto-ryu and Gyokko-ryu? Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Combined, these 2 forces are controlled by Jin man in the middle and manipulated through intent. Collin April 17, Originally Gyu by Bodhi Log in Remember Me?

I love that you delve into other areas of training. The name of the school, knocking a tiger downimplies that the techniques are for hitting a larger, more powerful opponent.

You can also try Kacem Zoughari, who has done extensive historical research. However, the starting distances in the rryu for the Koto Ryu are often quite far apart, so this would indicate that it was designed more for the battlefield, rather than confined spaces. Togakure Ryu, as you know, can’t be traced further back than Takamatsu. Chi earth supports and reflects creating a force coming up.

All are based on yin-yang or in-yo theory – the union of opposites. About Shindenfudo-ryu I understand that they are some rare sources about the founder of the Shito-ryu, Kenwa Mabuni, who was taught Shindenfudo-ryu in Okinawa. Although, even without seeing the pose, the name is a dead giveaway!

Sean April 14, And you might want to stock up on asprin and antacid before you try to sort this all out. Thank you guys for your answers and thank you for the advices, but, I am not interested in any Bujinkan propaganda.
