What is Yagyu Shinkage Ryu?

Yagyu Shinkage Ryu
is a definitely one of the most well known and influential Kenjutsu styles.
The founder Yagyu Muneyoshi was a well respected swordsman in Yagyu, now a part of Nara prefecture, western Japan. His life took a new turn when he met and challenged legendary Kamiizumi Isenokami Nobutsuna, the founder of Shinkage Ryu.
Unable to even touch Nobutsuna, Muneyoshi decided to become his apprentice and soon became one of the top students. One of the "assignments" given to Muneyoshi was to perfect the technique of "Muto-dori" or sword take away techniques. After years of rigorous and dedicated training Munenori perfected the techniques and was chosen by Nobutsuna as a recipient of Shinkage Ryu.
Muto-dori is considered to be an ultimate expression of Japanese Martial Arts ideal " Katsujin-ken"or "life-saving sword" as it only neutralizes the attacker by taking his weapon away, but not take his life. After the death of Muneyoshi, the style was split in two with Yagyu Hyogonosuke, whom Muneyoshi is said to have preferred due to Munenori using the Yagyu Shinkage Ryu for his own purposes and to climb the hierarchy of the Tokugawa Shogunate, heading the Main Owari line of the Yagyu Shinkage Ryu style, while Munenori took over the Edo line. While The Edo line is no longer headed by a descendant of the Yagyu family, the Owari mainline is currently headed by the 22nd headmaster, Yagyu Toshinobu and it is one of the most widely practiced Kobudo/Koryu Bujutsu in Japan and abroad.

It is my favorite Bokken. Light weight, well made, beautiful and elegant. I will order a second one to keep in my other car. The Laser engraving makes extra nice too.
