none of those are the original "yoshin ryu" they are "hontai'' yoshin ryu or "shindo" yoshin ryu, or some other derivative of the original

I mean no disrespect, however that is analogous to saying that Windows XP is not a Windows Operating System because it is not the original. If you look at the Lineage provided by Mr. Threadgill, you can trace his line back to the original.

This is all aside from the point. The Gentleman who posted this thread (Haze) was interested in a Yoshin Ryu program in his area. I posted some links so that he could further make a discision as American Federation Yoshin would be different from the stuff you see in Japan. Although Mr. Moore may be a great martial artist ( I don't know him nor his reputation)


this is a "recreation" of sorts. as best he can calculate this is close to what the actual first style of yoshin ryu could've been like

I would deem by your post that this would be radically different from the stuff shown by Mr. Threadgill or Mr. Fabian. That is all I am trying to show.

no offense taken, or intended.
my point moore does not claim to teach shindo yoshin ryu, or hontai yoshin ryu. he claims to teach yoshin ryu. i do not mean to say he claims to teach THE ORIGINAL style of yoshin ryu. that is what i was getting at.
in an earlier post i also stated that the closest thing you will find to the original style was some that you also mentioned. still they are not THE original style. yes you could say it is contained in those arts. i am not trying to dispute that at all.
you can do anything you want just cant always do it alone
to ask is a moments shame, not to ask, and remain ignorant is a lifelong shame

Groovy...domo .

Do you know if the original poster was able to visit said school? I'm interested to know if he is taking the class or not.

We're all "imitators" of the original styles of martial arts. When I do Aikido, I'm usually imitating Toyoda Sensei imitating Ueshiba Sensei and Tohei Sensei... or Sogunuma Sensei imitating Ueshiba Sensei. How well we do it is what makes our "style" closer to the original. That's why it matters who your teachers are...
