Kobudo Koshu-style Jujutsu

About the style

The style of antique martial arts derived from the Samurai “Tsuneyasu Haibarakaganokami” in Sengoku-Era who is the ancestor of this Master. He served Nobunaga Oda as the master of the martial arts. Mainly, the technique of spears, Japanese swords, batting and throwing were inherited to be practicable in a battle. You can learn these techniques in Tokyo-Shinjuku today.

 

About the Master

I’m Yukiji Haibara, from Yamanashi, Kofu-city. I grew up in Iwaki-city, Fukushima in my childhood. I began to learn this martial style then as well as other kinds; Karate, Iaido and so on. I have taught “Kobudo” (ancient style) in Tokyo for 7 years. Today, I am surrounded by enthusiastic students, in various age and both male and female.

 

The feature of the style

There are techniques to gain control over an enemy who attacks with a knife. And you can learn how to use weapons; for example, the replica of Japanese-sword. By learning the original spirit of Samurai, unlike other sports, and ways to control one’s body without relying on muscles will make not only men but also women strong. Training both body and spirit is emphasized in this style. When either of them lacks, it cannot be complete. Both practical and spiritual exercises will be executed.

 

To master the spirit of the Bushi-do (the road of Samurai)

In Japan, there is an idea that there is spirit in language, called “Kotodama”. When you say dirty words, it is said that your soul is distained. However, you can use beautiful words too. And you can ennoble your spiritual with behaving in a right way. This is the “Bushido-spirit”. You can acquire Samurai’s courtesy.
