This video is the last in the Bojutsu Ryuha series and is the oldest historical Ryuha, dating back to the age of Japanese Gods.
This Ryuha’s Bojutsu has never been shown to the public! Because this Ryuha has a unique history linking it to the Amatsu Tatara system, its history and techniques have been a closely held secret. The ownership of the special scrolls and Densho associated with this Ryuha are proof of attaining true Grandmastership in both the Bojutsu and Amatsu Tatara Bumon & Shumon.
The 43rd generation Grandmaster Takamatsu wrote a book called “Dai Nihon Goshin Bojutsu no Maki (Kukishin Ryu Bo-jutsu)” about the patterns from this Ryuha in 1953. Grandmaster Takamatsu gave this special book to Kimbei Sato and taught him the system. The Kukishinden Happo Biken-jutsu Bojutsu system (at their highest level) also includes patterns from this Ryuha.
Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura, as the 45th generation Grandmaster, would like to share with the world how great traditional Bojutsu martial arts truly are. For this reason, this video is being made available not only to members, but for the public as well.
Simply watching this video gives one a feeling of something special and ancient. If you learn this system as a student of Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura or one of his recognized dojo-cho, then you can feel the true tradition and spiritual feeling through training these ancient patterns.
