3 Facts about School of Kukishinden Ryu | Sword Fighting


So, the school that we focus on here at the
Bujinka Maten Dojo is the Kukishinden ryu school of the nine bujinkan schools of martial
arts, which involves kenjutsu, bojutsu, and other various forms of weapons. The school was founded by Ryushin Yakushimaru,
in the 14th century. There’s a legend that say that he was able
to fend off with a few other of his associates an entire army, at a pass. An army of 10,000 soldiers was accosting them
after they had escaped from a castle, trying to save an emperor. They fought off an entire army using bojutsu
and kenjutsu and naginatajutsu and the arts that are specified in the Kukishinden ryu
densho. Kukishinden ryu has quite an esteemed history
and we’re fortunate to be able to study this particular classical kenjutsu school.
