Takagi Yoshin Ryu (High Tree Raised Heart School)

Just an update in addition to the newsletter about the school for this year's focus. From this Spring till next Spring, we will be exploring the Takagi Yoshin Ryu Jutaijutsu (Jujutsu). This is a very old school from Japan and is often called the body guard school. It is one of the Bujutsu (Samurai fighting arts) schools of the Bujinkan. This school had very close ties to the Kukishinden Ryu, another Bujutsu school, and possibly one of the most prominent Samurai schools/families in Japan. FYI, Kukishinden Ryu is another of the Bujinkan's schools that Hatsumi is the Soke of. We will explore Takagi Yoshin Ryu as only part of our overall training. The largest portion of training will still be the Ninjutsu syllabus of the TenChiJin. The remainder of the training will be in Takagi Yosin Ryu, or studying which ever of the past yearly themes we are currently on as we work through all past themes. See you on the mat!
