Toby Threadgill began his martial arts training in western fencing as a college student. In 1980 he began training in Wado-ryu karate under J.Gerry Chau which lead to his interest in other Japanese arts and his training in Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin-ryu (TSYR) with Yukiyoshi Takamura, headmaster of the art. Over the years he has acquired experience in many different martial arts and had opportunities to train with some of the top practitioners in their systems. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and insight into martial arts in general, and Japanese bujutsu in particular.

Threadgill sensei is one of only two people in the world to be awarded menkyo kaiden (full transmission) in Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin-ryu, and is Kaicho of the Takamura ha Shindo Yoshin Kai worldwide.
He was a featured demonstrator at Aiki Expo's 2002 and 2003 and will be a featured instructor in 2005.
He was also a featured instructor at the Aikido Summit 2004.
He currently operates a private dojo in Evergreen, Colorado.

Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin ryu bujutsu is a gendai bujutsu based on the original Shindo Yoshin ryu founded by Hirotsuke Totsuka. After moving to the United States Takamura Yukiyoshi saw that the traditional training methods of jujutsu were not well suited for the realities of modern life in America. Thus he set about the task of reforming the technical curriculum to confront the realistic challenges of life in America, while still embracing the core concepts and classical dojo environment that are the heart of traditional Japanese jujutsu. Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin Ryu was therefore reborn as a new representation of the classical concepts taught to him by his father and grandfather. While still maintaining the traditional curriculum and weapons training in knife, sword, and staff, a modified curriculum was also developed to address the harsh realities of the present day.

Initially characterized by an aggressive, almost predatory, hard jujutsu syllabus that must sometimes be practiced on training dummies because of the damage the techniques can inflict upon the human body, TSYR has also at its higher levels "myoden" teachings. These techniques are a study in subtly of movement, sensitivity and psychological manipulation in TSYR, which, though not using the term "aiki" are the epitome of what aiki is. Extremely soft, subtle movements, and sensory manipulation of the opponent, that reduce all extraneous movements. In the past these elements of the art were not demonstrated as openly as they are today, or even to lower-level students. It is this aspect of the art that has resulted in Sensei Threadgill being invited to so many Aikido related events to share his art.

History correction…

I made a couple of errors in my post...

1) There are actually 3 menkyo kaiden in Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin ryu. Takagi Iso in Japan also has been awarded menkyo Kaiden but retired just before Takamura sensei passed away.

2) Katsunosuke Matsuoka founded SYR, not Hirotsuke Totsuka.

I think I got the rest of it right though.

Re: Toby Threadgill, TSYR seminar in Souther

Hi folks,

Just wanted to pipe up and say that I've had the pleasure of training with and talking to Threadgill sensei earlier this year. Good techniques and a good man. If any of you get the chance to train with him, I'd recommend it...
