Immovable Heart School of "hard Weapon Body Art"
of the secret attributes of Shinden Fudo ryu is the
"Principle of nature". The ryu originated by Genpachiro
Temeyoshi in the mid 12th century. It is traced back to
Kosshijutsu wich was introduced by Izumo Kanja Yoshitero.
Kuki Takei from the Kuki family of Kukishin ryu was also
from the Shinden Fudo ryu. Takenaka Tetsunoke, senior
student of Jigoro Kano (the founder of Judo) was at one
time a student at the Shinden Fudo ryu Dojo. Kuden says
that Yari was taught to Izumo (the founder) by Tengu
(demons), and these techniques still remain a secret today.
The school uses several different types of Yari, Ono (war
axes), O-tsuchi (war hammers), and Naginata (halberd).
Hojojutsu (the art of tying someone with a rope) is used
along side the Taijutsu, to help restrain the opponent. The
school is specialized on Jujutsu and Iainuki (fast sword
drawing). The Taijutsu of this school bases on Jutai jutsu
(levers, controls and throws) and on Dakentai jutsu
