自然舘

Jinen Ryū Jissen Kobudō

Training Characteristic: Sword, Two Sword, Weighted Chain, Truncheon, Knife, Iron Fan. The Jinen Ryū was founded by Retired Lieutenant Colonel Fumio Manaka (Unsui Sensei), to teach the fundamentals of classical Japanese fighting arts that he has gathered over 50 years of life study.

Unsui Sensei’s dedication to the preservation of the individual Ryū-ha is illustrated in the Jinen Ryū Kobudō. The Ryū-ha are very complex and it must be understood that basic comprehension of taijutsu and weaponry fundamentals must be in place before progressing onto the traditions.

One could spend their life studying the immense amount of techniques and principles Unsui Sensei has recorded within the Jinen Ryū, but without solid fundamentals, advancement in the individual lineages would be unrealistic. 

九鬼神伝流八法秘剣術

Kukishinden Ryū Happo Bikenjutsu

Training Characteristic: Unarmed fighting, sword, short sword, halberd, spear, staff, stick and truncheon. Unarmed kata involve the study of movement while under the stress of wearing load bearing equipment (armor). Training is historically specific to the technique employed by the Samurai related to this lineage. Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido was a student of Kukishin Ryū and the jojutsu of Aikido was heavily influenced by this lineage.Unsui Sensei’s dedication to the preservation of the individual Ryū-ha is illustrated in the Jinen Ryū Kobudō.

高木揚心流

Takagi Yoshin Ryū Jutaijutsu

Training Characteristic: Unarmed fighting. Founded by Takagi Oriemon Shigetoshi (born 1635), or his student Takagi Umanosuke, the techniques employed primarily concentrate on subduing an opponent in close quarter engagement and restraining them. The Takagi Yoshin Ryū has a history of use in Japanese security enforcement and this is clearly evident when the techniques are witnessed. It is also connected with Kukishin Ryū (founded by Ōkuni Kihei Shigenobu, who was also the 4th sōke of Takagi Ryū). 

玉虎流骨指術

Gyokko Ryū Koshijutsu

Training Characteristic: Unarmed fighting. Cho Gyokko brought the school to Japan from China during the Tang Dynasty and it was handed down from generation to generation. Sakagami Taro Kunishige organized Gyokko Ryū shitojutsu. In the Tenmon period (1532 – 1550), he taught it to Sakyo Isshinsai who created Gyokko Ryū kosshijutsu.

虎倒流骨法術

Kotō Ryū Koppōjutsu

Training Characteristic: Unarmed fighting. Kotō Ryū Koppōjutsu is an offensive system of close quarter fighting, where the operator uses linear attacks and responses to disrupt/destroy the opponent’s structural foundation. It shares the same history as Gyokko Ryū. 

戸隠流忍法

Togakure Ryū Ninpō

Training Characteristic: Unarmed fighting/escape methods, sword, projectiles, sickle-chain, unorthodox weaponry, wilderness/environmental adaptation, combat swimming. The Togakure Ryū employs highly unconventional techniques of escape, evasion and intelligence gathering. The training of this lineage is rigorous and very often misunderstood. Our commitment to preserving the study of this lineage is done by strict adherence to the densho and comprehension of the historical role of the Iga Ninja. 

神傳不動流

Shindenfudō Ryū Dakentaijutsu / Jutaijutsu

Training Characteristic: Unarmed fighting. Shinden Fudo means “immovable teachings transmitted by the gods.” This tradition has many body conditioning methods using items found in nature. The forms and characteristic movements are illustrated in the tradition’s relaxed, compliant nature. The Ryū may have been founded in the middle of the 12th century by Genpachiro Temeyoshi according to some.

JISSEN KOBUDO JINENKAN

Literally translated, Jinenkan means "Hall of Nature" and represents Unsui Sensei's feeling of his martial arts being like the natural flow of the elements. Just as the wind can pass around any obstacle and leave no trace, or alternately can destroy anything in its path.
