WHAT IS THE KORYU?
At school we want to maintain direct contact with Japan, the origin. One of the ways is through koryu , in Japanese, ancient combat schools. These schools are the seed of most of the disciplines of martial arts that we practice today. Koryu , in Japan is currently practiced by a small group of people given the degree of involvement and perseverance that it requires. Koryu is a family, a clan. Nobody joins a family if they are not very sure that this is their path. Practicing a Koryu in Japan today is still a great responsibility and that is not appealing to many people. At the Tadaima Dojo we practice these ancient schools from a certain level of commitment that is demonstrated when the student acquires a medium / high degree of practice. The Koryu practiced in the dojo is Shibukawa Ichi Ryu del Soke, director of the school, Kurumaji Yosimitsu of which the teacher José Miranda is the Kancho , director at the dojos of Shin Do Goshin Kai and his son Juan Miranda possesses the Shibu or permission to instruct.
ABOUT SHIBUKAWA ICHI RYU
澁 川 一 流
The Shibukawa Ichi Ryu school was founded by Shuto Kuranoshin Mitsutoki in the last days of the Tokugawa shogunate , in the Edo era , (1830-1844). It arises from the union by its founder of three schools, Shibukawa Ryu, Namba Ippo Ryu and Ashayama Ichiden Ryu . Today the school principal is Soke Kurumaji Yosimitsu , from Hiroshima City. During an exhibition in the city of Nobeoka where he could participate maestro José Miranda observed practice a embu to the Soke Kurumaji Yoshimitsu I performed kusharigama, composed of a weapon sickle ( kama ) attached to a chain (kusari). Years later in the city of Hiroshima in the Butokuden , a center for the dissemination of Japanese martial arts, some Tadaima students with the teacher José Miranda attended a Soke Kurumaji class from Shibukawa Ichi Ryu Jujutsu . From that moment, a relationship began that led to the entrance of the Soke Kurumaji school of Shindo Goshin Kai students, including many from the Tadaima Dojo. Likewise, the Soke appointed the teacher José Miranda and his son Juan Miranda as the representative of the school as the person in charge of teaching in the different Shin Do Goshin Kai dojos.
