RYU HA GIKAN RYU KOPPO JUTSU (Truth, Loyalty, and Justice school - Bone/Structure attacking art) Founder

: Uryu Hangan Gikanbo - 16. century The Gikan Ryu Koppojutsu is almost totally unknown today to the public. The founder of Gikan Ryu was Uryu Hogan Gikanbo , who lived during the Eiroku Era (1558 - 1570). The Gikan Ryu was heavily influenced by Gyokko Ryu Koppojutsu. From the teachings of Gikanbo comes the saying: 'Bufu Ni Sente Nashi (From this side will not come the first strike) . Gikan Ryu Koppojutsu contains special kicks, punches and throws. It is said that Gikanbo developed a special punch that could break a sword. Gikan Ryu is known for powerful "cross" counterstrikubg, which come from far side of the body to strike, unlike strikes seen in the other Bujinkan schools. These strikes, when performed properly, can disable the attacker without further confrontation. GYOKKO RYU KOSSHI JUTSU (Jewel Tiger School - Flesh Attacking Art) Founder: Tozawa Hakuunsai - 12. century Koshijutsu: Attacks against soft parts of the body and muscles. Moves sideways, or around the attack, to get close to Kyoshi (the week parts of the body). These targets can be nerve points, but also inner organs, or muscles and where the muscles are attached. One of the reasons for this system is probably because it was developed by a small person. A frequently used body weapon in Gyokko ryu is the fingers and the fingertips. It is important to protect the heart. Therefore a starting position with the right leg forward is preferred, so that the left side is turned away from the opponent. Gyokko Ryu Kosshijutsu is the oldest school in the Bujinkan, and was probably brought to Japan from China around 618 AD - 907 AD. Gyokko Ryu's movement is suited for armored or unarmored combat. It utilizes distancing, circular movements and attacks to detailed functions of the body such as muscles and nerves. Typical for the Gyokko Ryu are powerful counter-striking blocks that hit with the knuckles and balance-taking. Shitojutsu (use of thumbs and fingers) is at trait of Gyokko Ryu, and the many various fist positions used in the Bujinkan come from this school GYOKUSHIN RYU NINPO (Jewel Heart School - Higher order of ninjutsu) Founder: Sasaki Goeman Teruyoshi - 16. century It is believed that the techniques of Gyokushin Ryu are based on Gyokko Ryu. In the west, not much is known of the combat techniques of Gyokushin Ryu, except that it may have utilized many sacrifice-throws. The school specialized in the espionage aspect of Ninjutsu. This school was kept secret and unmixed with other schools until it passed to Toda Nobutsuna (1624-1644). KOTO RYU KOPPO JUTSU (Knocking Down Tiger School - Bone/Structure Attacking Art) Founder: Chan Buso - 16. century The exact origin of this school is not known, but it is speculated that the Koto Ryu came to Japan via Korea, by Chan Busho, a Chinese warrior. The techniques were organized by Sakagami Taro Kunishige in 1542. Koto Ryu uses short distances between opponents, and the techniques are direct and to- the-point. It focuses on powerful striking, with power generated from twisting and turning of the hips and shoulders. In the Bujinkan, it is renowned for its unarmed techniques that attack the body's structure to take down opponents. Distance is created by moving along with the attack, then moving forward with a strike and then move quickly out to a safe distance again. This is done to come in with a strike at exactly 90 degrees against the bone structure of the attacker to do most damage. To do this demands good timing and rhythm in the defensive attack, often done with yoko aruki. Another important part of the footwork is to hit the attackers toki (the top of the foot), by kicking or stepping on it to control his balance. Starting distance should be really big from the start, the attacker must take one big step or several steps to reach the defender. This states clearly that Koto Ryu was developed for the battlefield or out doors in general, and not inside a house or narrowed places. The Koto Ryu stylist should be looking right between the attackers eyebrows, so that the attacker cannot read the intentions through his eyes. The attacker will also believe that he have eye contact, wich will be confusing for him in an unusual way. Other typical methods of Koto Ryu is the use of metsubushi, different ways of blinding the attacker or attacking the eyes directly. KUKISHINDEN RYU HAPPO BIKEN (Nine Demons School - Weapons Art) Founder: Izumo Koshiro Yoshiteru - 12. century The founder was a guard of the Tenno Go-Daigo (Emperor) called Yasushimaru Kurabito Takamasa. Because of his excellent contribution as a guard, Yasushimaru was later awarded Kuki family name. The Kukishinden style was developed in the Kumano prefecture, and during the life of the school it was employed by Japanese seamen for combat. This greatly influenced the schools techniques and weapons. Warriors of the Kukishinden are said to have used masts and rigging during combat. In addition to eight techniques such as Bojutsu, Yari, Naginata, Shuriken, Taijutsu this Ryu also uses Kenpo (Sword). It excels especially in it's use of the sword. At the time, as it was an era of civil wars, sword was mainly used to kill, but as time changes and it became more peaceful, sword switched its function to protect good, and punish the bad. Because the Kuki Suigun (Navy) used swords on ships, the lowered Posture that gave better balance became the basic way of sword of this Ryu. This school is most famous in the Bujinkan for its many different weapon techniques. It is a complete fighting system and battlefield art based on unarmed fighting, bo, hanbo, yari and naginata techniques as well as techniques for throwing projectiles. Techniques are done assuming the combatants are wearing armor, and the movements reflect this. Since this

system may have been used as a naval art, consequently the movements are designed to be used on a ship that is slippery and rocking.Sensei Ueshiba, the founder of modern Aikido, in his youth studied the Kukishinden from the Kuki family. KUMOGAKURE RYU NINPO (Hiding In The Coluds School - HIgher order of ninjutsu) Founder: Heinaizaemon Ienaga Iga - 16. century It is introduced by Iga Heinaizaemon Ienaga (Kumogakure Hoshi) who was believed to be the founder of Iga Ryu Ninpo. This Ryu was passed to the Toda family by Toda Sagenta Nobufusa. Ninjutsu school of thought, centering its techniques on the non-violent side of Ninjutsu. Specialties of this Ryu include the Kamayari (a hooked spear), and is known for its tobi-waza (jumping techniques). The hooked spear was originally used for climbing up the sides of ships and was also used against swordsmen. Also used was the Demon Mask, sometimes worn by the members of the Ryu, for masking their faces, to play on the myth surrounding ninja and to scare the enemy. It may be from here that the Kikaku Ken strike ("Demon Horn strike") originated, which is rarely seen in other arts. When going into battle, ninja of this Ryu wore armored sleeves to protect themselves. Kumogakure Ryu also taught various survival techniques such as making fire in wet weather. It is said that the phrase "Shikin Haramitsu Daikomyo", which is said during the Bujinkan bowing procedure, comes from this Ryu and reflects both Buddhist and Shinto attitudes. SHINDEN FUDO RYU DAKEN TAIJUTSU (Immoveable Heart School - Striking/Grappling Art) Founder: Izumo Kanja Yoshiteru - 12. century Shindenfudo Ryu Dakentaijutsu was founded in the beginning of 1100 by Izumo Kaja Yoshitero. Shindenfudo Ryu's jujitsu was one of the arts that contributed to the creation of Kodokan Judo. It is most famous in the Bujinkan for the rough Dakentaijutsu striking techniques. It utilizes throws, strikes, locks, and kicks done in a fairly straightforward manner. It uses the body as a striking weapon and often appears "hard" in application. The Shinden Fudo Ryu emphases the use of nature, and techniques are often very casual-looking. There are no formal postures in the school, the kamae are ?held in your heart?. However most of the techniques start from natural standing and sitting postures. One of the secret attributes of Shinden Fudô ryu is the "Principle of nature". Shinden Fudo Ryu suits small od weak persons very well. The school is specialized on Jujutsu and Iainuki (fast sword drawing). Striking and kicking should be done in blind angles of the opponent. TAKAGI YOSHIN RYU JUTAIJUTSU (High Tree, Raised Heart School - Grappling Art) Founder: Takagi Oriemon Shigenobu - 17. century Takagi Yoshin Ryu was often used by ancient Japanese police in close-quartered urban settings to apprehend fugitives. It employs grappling and throwing techniques similar to modern day Jujitsu/Judo/Aikido. Takagi Yoshin Ryu has a "yielding" feel that reacts to the forces provided by the opponent, and uses someone's efforsts against them. Although similar in some ways to Judo/Jujitsu/Aikido, Takagi Yoshin Ryu goes further by making it more difficult for the opponent to roll or fall safely. It includes techniques for non-lethally ambushing, disarming, and capturing people for questioning. Fighting wearing armour and Daisho (long and short sword), and fighting agains oponent wearing armour and Daisho. Takagi Yoshin Ryu Jutaijutsu has been handed down together with Kukishinden Ryu for generations. TOGAKURE RYU NINPO (Hidden Door School - Stealth/Survival Combat Art) Founder: Diasuke Nishina - 12. century It was founded by Togakure Daisuke who was a vassal of Kiso Yoshinaka when he lost a war and, after learning various military arts such as Kosshijutsu, and Kenjutsu from his uncle Kagakure Doshi, was in hiding in Iga in the early 12th Century. It was initially called Togakure Ryu Happo Hiken but has been called by various names since that time. Iga Ninja such as Momochi Sandayu and others studied the Ryu and they passed it to the Natori family of Kishu clan, and later in the 17th Century, to the Toda Family. Togakure Ryu is known for it's use of the Shuko, Sendan Nage, Shuriken, 4 feet Shinodake used in Suiren. Togakure Ryu Ninpo Taijutsu is a branch of Kosshijutsu. Togakure utilizes a large array of ninja weapons, including the Kosetsu Shogee, shuriken, Shuko/Ashiko hand and foot claws, grappling hooks, etc. The movements in Togakure Ryu are very low, stretched out and angular - as opposed to circular movements with small foot-base as seen in other arts. It was developed in highly mountainous areas, and its very low stances and long range attacks make much more sense when put in the context of that terrain. The strategies employed are adapted for survival and escape, such as throws that direct the attacker away, rolling movements, evasion and "disappearing" skills, and techniques that incapacitate (sometimes brutally and deceptively). When necessary, the emphasis was on escape and spying involving the use of little gadgets, espionage, concealment, sabotage, breaking in and escaping, etc. The Sakki Test for the rank of Godan (sensing an attack without seeing it) comes from Togakure Ryu

The throw will depend on how close you are to Uke. If you are very close, you may keep hold of the shaft, and push the blade in. You may place the left hand/arm straight out, and rest the end of the Yari near the wrist as a rest. This position is used as a threatening posture if you do not wish to kill Uke, but guard over him.

When you Tsuki hit the side of his sword, manipulate him by moving to both sides of his sword. If you use a Gedan no kamae, you can thrust from below, do not hesitate between thrusts. If you use a Jumonji Yari, the cross blades can be used to catch his sword, and push his sword back towards him. This way you can also Tsuki and turn the Jumonji Yari so that the crossblades miss his sword and you skewer him. If you spiral the Tsuki, he will think you are trying to trap his sword, when in fact you spiral past his sword to thrust at his body. This is Kyojitsu. Kasumi Gata (Mist forms) (Gokui Gata)

Rotate the Yari on the left side and Tsuki with the hands close together just either side of the centre of the Yari. Notes: While you rotate the Yari, move in as if you were a whirlpool. When you rotate the Yari on the left, the Ishizuki as it comes down can strike to the wrists taking the left hand away from the sword. When you rotate the Yari at the start, make him look at your rear hand. This will draw his attention away from everything else. This is important. A variation is to also rotate the front hand.

Notes: Shinki can penetrate through armour (hold the Yari lightly and relaxed, being ready to make the next move by sensing where to go next). With a Jumonji Yari you can hit his katana with the cross blades to stop him cutting down. Do this in rapid repeating strikes. Twist/spiral the Jumonji Yari as you Tsuki. This way you can thrust past his katana to hit him. He initially gets the impression you will hit the sword. Change the spiral, then you can hit his sword, catching it. Then with a twist of the wrist you can snare his sword between the cross blades and the straight blade. This gives you a better control of him when he is trapped.

Notes: The Do Uchi is more of a thrust than a sideways strike. If Uke is in Seigan when you Tsuki straight at him, you must then trust with a turning motion with the end of the Yari to knock the sword out of the way, while you continue the Tsuki inwards. It is important to move the spine. If you strike with the Ishizuki to the cheek it is called Yokotsura Tsuki Buse (Trusting down.)
