Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo – Koryu Bujutsu

Shindo Musō-ryū was founded in the early Edo Period (around 1600) by Musō Gonnosuke. According to legend, Gonnosuke fought a duel with the famous swordsman Miyamoto Musashi, which ended in defeat for Gonnosuke. Gonnosuke, shocked by his loss, retired to a cave on Mount Homan for a period of meditation, during which time he developed a new system for utilizing the jo against the sword. In a rematch, Gonnosuke used this new system, Shindo Muso Ryu, to fight Musashi to a draw, the only time Musashi is believed to have been defeated. For the next 300 years the ryu remained an exclusive art of the Kuroda samurai. Only in the 1900’s did the teachings of the ryu become more wide spread, beginning with military and police forces, and eventually being taught to westerners for the first time in the 1950s.
