SAMURAI HEIHO TAIGISHIN-KAN
Samurai Heiho Taigishin-kan
侍 兵法 (warrior fighting strategy) is a general form of bujutsu, not a style, derived from the experiences of Prof. Angelo Bonanno in the Japanese martial arts and traditional culture; its body consists of four parts:
- Atemijutsu: empty hand techniques
- Jujutsu: joint blocking and throwing techniques
- Buki waza: weapons techniques (tojutsu, tanto, jo, etc.)
- Bunka: study of traditional culture as Shodo, Haiku, etc.
The Samurai Heiho Taigishin-kan is now mainly based on the to-jutsu techniques (sword techniques), those from the Mondo-ryu Heiho, an ancient samurai system of XVI Century War Era, now preserved by Masashi Yokoyama Sensei who is its 15th Soke.
It also includes aiki idea of Daitoryu Aikijujutsu, from Renshinkan line.
Prof. Bonanno is recognized by the Armored Samurai Battle Association of Osaka, entity member of the Kokusai Bujutsu Bunka Renmei of Osaka.
