Araki ryu Torite Kogusoku

Takasaki Araki ryu

Takasaki Araki-ryu

This line is almost identical to other lines of Kozuke Araki-ryu, with the unique arrangement of the kogusoku kata, ryogu no dan, and the same bakujo mokuroku.  This ryu was transferred to Takasaki from Maebashi Araki-ryu shihan, Fusejima Kauemon ( 伏嶋嘉左工門惟貞)

However, they added five techniques to what was, in other traditions, Go ho no Dan, making it Ju ho.  They also added a single gokui kata, apparently for sword.  (I have reproduced the Japanese names as they are in the makimono:  the writer avoided using some difficult characters.  Also, some characters are hard to read.  I've included my best guest in red).  Mr. Ueno, who provided me with a copy of his makimono in approximately 1980, received mokuroku menkyo at the age of twenty-one in Showa 2 (1928).  He discontinued training after that period.
