Description of Matsuoka Ha Shinto Yoshin Ryu

willowpinebudo

Katsunosuke Matsuoka was born in Edo on the 26th of December, 1836. He studied Muira Yoshin Ryu and Tenjin Shinyo Ryu jujutsu, as well as Hozoin Ryu Sojutsu (Spear Arts), Hakushin Itto Ryu and Jikishinkage Ryu Kenjutsu (sword arts). In 1864, four years before the Meiji Restoration, Matsuoka created Shinto Yoshin Ryu (新 道 楊 心 流), meaning “New Willow Spirit School” combining the remnants of both Yoshin Ryu (Muira Yoshin Ryu and Tenjin Shinyo Ryu) and the various weapon schools in which he was proficient.
After being shot in the back in the battle of Toba-Fushimi, where he fought for the Shogun against the forces loyal to the Meiji, Matsuoka escaped to Ueno village. He took the name Ishijima from his wife’s family, who resided in Ueno village. Matsuoka opened a dojo, with an adjacent bone setting clinic that provided financial stability. In 1884, he was given official permission to run his medical clinic and in 1887 was officially pardoned by the Meiji government. It was at this time that he established the Matsuoka Shindokan dojo, changing the meaning of Shinto Yoshin Ryu from “New Willow Spirit School”(新 道 楊 心 流) to “Sacred Willow Spirit School” (神 道 揚 心 流) . The Matsuoka Shinodkan became well known for the martial proficiency of its adherents. Matsuoka Katsunosuke, one of the last personal body guards of the Tokugawa Shogun, died in 1898.
