What is Jikishin Kage Ryu?

Jikishin Kage Ryu is a Shinkage Ryu based style with heavy emphasis on "Kokyu" or proper coordination of breathing and movement.
Also the style is known for its use of super heavy back breaking "Furibo", some weighing well over 100lbs, for suburi exercise. Working with such heavy Furibo definitely forces one to work on proper coordination of breathing and movement or one can end up with a pretty bad back injury.
This style was one of the most widely practiced Kenjutsu style in late Edo period due to its practicality and modern, effective training methods. Kenkichi Sakakibara and Otani Seiichiro are highly respected swordsmen who mastered and taught Jikishin Kage Ryu in the late Edo period. It is also known that the founder of Daito Ryu Aikijiujutsu, Takeda Sokaku also trained extensively in this school along with Ono-ha Itto Ryu.
