Takagi Yoshin Ryū Jūtai jutsu - Bujinkan Tshirt

Regular price $30.99

Takagi Yoshin Ryū Jūtai jutsu is one of the 9 ryūha that are a part of the Bujinkan Budō Taijutsu taught by Soke Masaaki Hatsumi. Takagi Yoshin Ryū was founded by Takagi Oriemon Shigenobu who was born in 1635. The Imperial bodyguards and that of the Shogun were trained in this school. 

Takagi Yoshin Ryu can be translated in English to "The Heart of the Willow School."

Takagi Yoshin Ryu is known for wearing long-sleeved kimono, which restricts one's ability to move quickly or attack. Which were required to be worn within the court of the Emperor of Japan or the Shogun.  When performing techniques within this school, the idea is to make it difficult for the uke to take good ukemi or to roll. You also want to keep them close to you when you throw them instead of creating distance.

A fundamental difference in this Koryu is that it was designed and trained for fighting indoors instead of outside on the battlefield.

In this design we have included:

  • The kanji in the center, 高 木 揚 心 流 柔 体 術 or Takagi Yoshin Ryū Jūtai jutsu
  • On the left, we have an image of Soke Hatsumi training in a long-sleeved kimono
  • In the middle, we have an image of the view through the Imperial Gates to the court of the Japanese Emperor
  • On the right, is an image showing Kyusho points on the body

The main design is located on the back of the T-shirt, with the Bujinkan Kanji on the front left chest.

This is designed for those who walk the path of Budo and wish to remind themselves along with others of the ongoing journey we are all on.

This was designed for TuWillows by Custin with the license for commercial use.
