Overview

Shin Kage Ryu jujutsu has existed as a fighting system since the nineteenth century, and the literal meaning of the three Chinese characters is "spirit shadow way." Originating in J apan and influenced by Okinawan fighting systems, the art has evolved into one that ip.corporates karate-like kicks, punches, and strikes, as well as the throwing, grappling, and joint techniques of judo. Thus, Shin Kage Ryu is a complete fighting system, one that combines the best elements of karate with those of jujutsu.

The unique mix of disciplines in Shin Kage Ryu makes it possible to fight with an opponent in an upright position and, if necessary, take him to the ground and score a victory by grappling or choking. Students are also taught extensive attack and defense techniques with both the sword and knife.

Author of the successful Karate Training: The Samurai Legacy and Modern Practice, Robin L. Rielly has written this book as an introduction to Shin Kage Ryu for those unfamiliar with it, and to insure that the knowledge of this fighting art is not lost. It remains a pure martial art, and because it is not practiced in sporting contests, its kata are often closer to real combat. Although in some ways similar to karate kata, advanced black belts in karate agree that the kata of Shin Kage Ryu have a different feeling-one that is both powerful and effective. As such, this book is an essential handbook for every karate practitioner and enthusiast.

    I find when I know someone who has read about this book they hav

    I find when I know someone who has read about this book they have little understanding of its significance. They see the sword play in the back and the name on the front and they associate it with a rare style of kenjitsu, there is no relation. They see the middle throws and chokes and the word jujitsu in the cover and think its all about grappling, and its not. They see karate and think its a manual for modern study, it is not and has little relevance on that. With listing all that it is NOT, and it is also not a style that the Author has even taught, it has become the most important book to my personal training and style because of what it does contain. As modern martial arts find three of a specific technique and then make that applicable to many situations, this Shin-Kage Ryu did the same. This has a little striking, a little grappling, and a little weaponry formatted and listed simply. This book is the basic curriculum of a backstreet post WWII dojo in Japan and describes how they trained this martial art for real world fighting. If you read the book and then read the Authors interview on THE SHOTOKAN WAYDOTCOM you get a feel of what it was like to be a young soldier in a foreign land learning a martial art and then bringing it back to the United States as was the way most martial arts left the East and headed West. This book also contains three essentially dead katas directly from the dojo that utilize all weapons and motions available during a fight. I cant describe how important a book like this is due to its implementation of techniques but has little use as a direct training manual. I recommend this for anyone who has training in Japanese martial arts or has training in multiple styles of martial arts. It is the only book written about this style of karate/ jujitsu.
