Trevor Robinson ShidoshiGIKAN RYU
Truth, Loyalty, and Justice school
Gikan Ryu is almost totally unknown to the public and the secret techniques werehanded down only to the next generation. The Gikan Ryu Grandmaster was UryuHangan Gikanbo. He was of the Eiroku Era (1558 - 1570). He was a ruler of Kawachi No Kuni (Osaka) with the clan castle “Uryujo”. He was a true warrior and martialartist. His original intentions were to strive to keep the country at peace for all time.From his teachings there comes his slogan “Bufu Ni Sente Nashi” (From this sidethere is not the first strike). The Gikan Ryu was developed by Gikanbo with a lot based on the Chinese style of Cho Gyoko’s line. He then merged these with nativeJapanese martial arts. This style contains special kicks, punches and throws. Gradeswere awarded on a step by step level system being scrolls for: Shoden Gata, ChudenGata, Okuden Gata, and Kaiden Gata etc... In ancient times the name Jujitsu was notused. The styles were termed: Kosshi Jutsu, Koppo Jutsu, Daken Taijutsu. His special punch could break a sword and he was a specialist of Koppo Jutsu, Hicho Jutsu andSenban Nage Jutsu, etc. The 10th Generation Uryu Gikanbo went by the same nameas the first. This man was a warrior supporting the Emperor’s side during the rebellionof “Tenchi Gumi No Ran” at the end of Edo Era on August 17th, 1863. This was afamous battle. He was a tremendous force in the battle, being injured by a rifle shot hecontinued attacking with his one arm until he was overcome by many sword cuts fromhis enemies. Injured to the point of exhaustion he retired from the battle behind atemple. He was found there by an Iga warrior, Ishitani Matsutaro on his way to jointhe battle. He was told by Gikanbo that it had finished. Ishitani aided Gikanbo andtook him into Iga to recover, later being repaid for this kindness by being taughtGikan Ryu techniques. On his own merit Ishitani Matsutaro was a Grandmaster already of Takagi Yoshin Ryu, Kukishin Ryu, etc. In Meiji Era when Ishitani was 61he was given employment by the father of Takamatsu Sensei at the family factory.From this Ishitani started teaching Takamatsu Sensei. From Ishitani, TakamatsuSensei was granted the Grandmastership of the next generation in Takagi Yoshin Ryu,Kukishin Ryu, Gikan Ryu etc.
