Araki ryu Torite Kogusoku

荒木流柔 Araki-ryu Yawara

Araki-ryu Yawara 荒木流柔

This line seems to have developed at approximately the eighth generation of the ryu.  One makimono, almost identical in kata names and also in lineage up to the seventh generation of Tanaka Denkyuro Tamehisa (田中傳九郎為久) refers to the school as Araki-ryu Yawara.  A second makimono, dated 1778, from Kumagaya Hisakane  (熊谷逸角久金) to one of his students, is named Kumagaya Araki-ryu.

Araki-ryu Yawara and Araki Shin-ryu share lineage through seventh generation shihan,  Tanaka Denkyuro Tamehisa (田中傳九郎為久)

Lineage of Araki-ryu Yawara 荒木流

Interestingly, this lineage names Araki Settsu no Kami and Araki Murashige in a preliminary lineage to Araki Muninsai, which indicates that the oral tradition of the latters connection to the Araki clan is quite old.  Note the variant kangi (天) in the name of Amari Hachibei.  (甘) is used in other lines that we are aware of.  See the section on Yamamoto Tabei for the same lineage within the mainstream Araki-ryu
