    Indeed, but they do have some similarities, am I right, or is it really different?

    P.S. Still want to know his name? ;)

    You will get different answers depending on who you ask. There are similarities, but the basic technique is very different, despite the kamae looking similar.

    Well I did wonder, but I thought it would be a bit rude to ask :)

    Did he study Yakumaru Jigen Ryu or Jigen Ryu Hyoho?

    I did not had the occasion to ask him but I believe it is hyoho, he went there a few weeks ago and went back directly to Afghanistan (he's in the army yes). I do have a nice picture of him practicing on their pell (do you know what's the name for it, I always wondered) in some very irregular training clothes :D. Anyway it was a very brief overview.

    The pell is called a tategi ( 立木 ) - literally standing wood. The horizontal pell used by Yakumaru Ryu is called a yokogi ( 横木 ) - horizontal wood.

    It would probably be better if you posted the names of the ryuha that Shinbukan teaches rather than just posting a dojo/org name and a weblink.

    That is what everyone else on this thread has done, anyway...

    So should this be listed on a koryu dojo directory?

    Hi Scott,
    I think that there is a big difference between forming a new technical style and a forming independent branch from the main line of an existing tradition by a menkyo kaiden holder who is continuing the original teachings of his teachers.

    Below is part of the reply that I wrote as an answer to Kogusoku's post, I was trying to quote it but that feature was not working for me. The link to the post is here http://www.martialartsplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=90907&page=3

    "Motoha Yoshin Ryu is a branch of the Hontai Yoshin Ryu-Takagi Ryu lineage following the teachings of Minaki Soke (Hontai Yoshin Ryu) and Kanazawa Ichizu sensei (Takagi Ryu), and as with any menkyo kaiden (=full transmission and permission to become independent) holder who branches off a koryu main line it is still a koryu art even though the Nihon Kobudo Kyokai only recognises the main line of any koryu.

    The name Motoha Yoshin Ryu refers to following the original style of teachings of Hontai Yoshin Ryu-Takagi ryu lineage with the Moto (origin) & ha (style) kanji and it also has reference to Yasumoto sensei's name.

    As an example Hontai Yoshin Ryu-Takagi Ryu was the original name for the Ryu but after Minaki soke organised the techniques into the modern Kata that are practiced now by Hontai Yoshin Ryu he renamed the ryu Fumon Yoshin Ryu in order to distinguish it from the original style. Minaki soke later renamed the art as Hontai Yoshin Ryu and it is still considered as a koryu. Minaki soke was also a founder member of the Nihon Kobudo Kyokai.

    The lineage does not break just because a Menkyo Kaiden holder uses their permission to become independent.

    The lineage on this web page was provided by Soke Yasumoto http://www.motohayoshinryu.co.uk/history5.htm "

    Motoha Yoshin Ryu is a Menkyo Kaiden continuation of the Hontai Yoshin Ryu-Takagi Ryu lineage.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

    Regards, Andy

    Chees for the info. Interesting stuff until I got to the Fumon Tanaka bit.

    Anyway, back to this being a dojo listing. Might carry the discussion on in the other thread.

    Remember the old 'samurai bujutsu' forum? They had all koryu listed as separate sections - could we do that with individual threads?
