This classic posture of one hand up, one hand down splitting heaven and earth is seen throughout Asian martial culture as a way of codifying Internal Power training.

Jon August 10, The angling of the attacks can often be at 90 degrees to the opponent, so the timing and rhythm of the practitioner gyokkk be excellent in order to be successful. On one hand, the linear fashion of Koto Ryu would indicate something of a Xing yi origin, although Xing yi itself is steeped in legend and the exact origin of that art are also unknown. Certainly though, Xing yi has an older claim, with its originator supposedly being Yue Fei, the famous Song Dynasty general 10thth century.

Unlike the Gyokko Ryu which plays more with distances, Koto Ryu is very close in its execution and is far gyokkl offensive. What I have done is pull out a few references from the Gyokko Ryu kamae that specifically discuss known concepts of internal power training.

This makes it hard to really tell what influenced it from a Chinese kung fu perspective. Since Gyokko Ryu comes from China and is known as the oldest and most foundational of our 9 schools, it seems the logical place to begin. Ah, the Takamatsuden Spaghetti again Gyoko Posted by Oniwaban.

Gyokko Ryu’s Internal Power Training

Togakure-ryu simply can not be traceable before Takamatsu, so I believe that he is the real founder of this Ryu-ha. Any informtation gyokko Takamatsu? This used to be done by punching and kicking stones and gravel.


Although, even without seeing the pose, the name is a dead giveaway! Like Gyokko Ryuit is thought to have originated from China, being brought to Japan by a monk called Chan Busho, but when, or even if this is true, remains a mystery. Again, thank you very much.

This training was considered secret and very high level thus it was usually reserved for only the successor and maybe other senior students. But there’s no getting away entirely from the Kool-Aid. About The Author Jon. So, what is the real story of this?

What I am looking for is about “non-Takamatsuden Ryu-ha”, I mean: Leave A Response Cancel reply. Jon April 14, At the very least you will find a lot more people interested in the topic.

Log gyoiko Forgotten Your Password? Why Isn’t This Taught? There is no doubt in my mind that Hatsumi Sensei possesses unusual power in his budo.

Hicho no Kamae “This kamae has the feeling of storing up energy in the entire body, like a bird being wrapped up by a snake. However, there are instances of many ninja knowing both, so it would appear that this was not a steadfast rule. Is this story true? Jon April 17, Seriously, you might pick up some useful leads from people in this forum, but for the most part even those of us who at one point did care have stopped wasting energy on the matter.

It could also have easily originated from a monk, Xing yi being a popular Taoist martial system. This type of body conditioning changes the way outside forces act on the body. Sean April 14, I appreciate your fensho contributions. About Gyokko-ryu I understand that the Densho of this Ryu-ha is physically the same paper of Togakure-ryu Densho, so in some way Togakure-ryu can actually be the Ninpo part of Gyokko-ryu.


By Internet I only have found this X-kan people talking always good about them selves and I do not believe in their claims. Combined the 2 opposites unite to create a known method of internal power training.

So since then, the Koto Ryu and Gyokko Ryu, follow the same lineage. Thank you guys for your answers and thank you for the advices, but, I am not interested in any Bujinkan propaganda. You could start by getting the Genbukan version of the story, as you’ll find they contradict some of the “facts” presented by Bujinkan folks.

Combined, these 2 denshoo are controlled by Jin man in the middle and manipulated through intent. I understand that there was an “Ura Soke” hidden Soke for Togakure-ryu at the same time that Masaaki Hatsumi was the “Omote Soke” exposed Sokethat Takamatsu made a copy by his own hand for this Ura Soke, named Yoshio Fukumoto and now this copy is on hands of Shoto Tanemura with the Menkyo Kaiden and a new Densho copy that he got from Hatsumi, but before Takamatsu there is no evidence of the existence of the Togakure-ryu, so in the Bugei Ryuha Daijiten the editor who was friend of Takamatsu says that Takamatsu made-up this Ryu-ha from his childhood games when he was a kid, and well, I have nothing about Gyokko-ryu by itself.
