Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu

One of the oldest extant Japanese martial arts

samoerai

Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto-ryu
( 天真正伝香取神道流 ) is the source tradition of many Japanese martial arts, and as such received the first ever Intangible Cultural Asset designation given to a martial art in 1960. It claims to have never aligned itself with any estate or faction, no matter what stipend was offered. This allowed the ryu to maintain its independence and integrity.

The current Headmaster is:
Otake Risuke Sensei (大竹利典) _Minamoto no Takeyuki_
and is proudly represented in The Netherlands by:
Erik Louw Sensei _ Mokuroku Katori Shinto Ryu_
