This book is by Munenori Shiigi, a remarkable teacher of Japanese martial arts. A 7th dan in Kodokan Judo, he learned his family art of Shinto RIkugo Ryu jujutsu as well as Katori Shinto Ryu from his father, and later earned a kyoshi license in the main line of Katori Shinto Ryu from Otake Risuke. Here he presents his family's line of Katori Shinto Ryu from his father Shiigi Keibun. Their family has been connected with the Katori and Kashima Shrines for centuries. The Shiigi family has a remarkable and unique relationship with Japanese oldest budo systems. In this exceptional book Shiigi Sensei shares some of that with us. Profusely illustrated, this book shows Katori Shinto Ryu iai, kenjutus, bojutsu, naginata, ryoto, kodachi, sojutsu (spear), kaiken, as well as some iai from Takeuchi Ryu and some Kashima Shinto Ryu bojutsu that has become attached to the Shiigi family line. Also included are teaching poems from the family tradition.
