Re: On Koryu

I must admit I'm pretty ignorant of Koryu and what it Toby how do you define Koryu? How is it different from Aikido, Ninjitsu, or Karate or any Japanese Martial Art? Is it strictly from the Samurai traditions?

And does Koryu have things like 'closed door disciples' (actually this phrase is from Chinese arts) and contain scrolls of knowledge that are passed down the next patriarch of the ryu? Or is this also myth?

Stay Cut,
