Yachigusa-Ryu Aiki Bugei
Yachigusa-Ryu Aiki-Bugei is a family style of traditional samurai martial arts. These arts were developed in 15th- and 16th-century Japan for use in medieval warfare and have come down to us in the modern era through the "Yachigusa" family.
These arts are currently being publicly taught by Gary Moro in a small dojo in San Francisco, CA.
The curriculum of Yachigusa-Ryu includes both armed and unarmed arts. The empty-handed arts center around aikijutsu and jujutsu. The weapon arts mainly focus on training with the sword (kenjutsu) and spear (sojutsu) but include many other traditional weapons.
