This Kukishin Ryu Bojutsu Shobukyoku system was founded by Toshitsugu Takamatsu in the year 1919. Takamatsu’s student Instructor, Kohshiro Kiba, later published a book on this system which gained it some popularity.
Kohshiro Kiba taught the system to Ichioh Ohba (Takeda Ryu Aiki Jujutsu 43rd Grandmaster). Ichioh Ohba taught the system to Kinbei Sato (44th Takeda Ryu Grandmaster). Kinbei Sato was awarded the Grandmastership directly by Toshitsugu Takamatsu. Kinbei Sato taught the system to Shoto Tanemura and taught him the Takeda Ryu final Kuden and secret
Shoto Tanemura was given the Kukishin Ryu Bojutsu Shobukyoku Grandmastership by Masaji Kimura who was also a senior Instructor of Toshitsugu Takamatsu’s.
These amazing techniques and patterns have not been shared with the public in over 60 years! Grandmaster Tanemura has decided the time has come to show the true patterns of the system to the public, and in doing so, share an insight into the spirit of Toshitsugu Takamatsu.
