Asayama Ichiden Ryu

Naganuma Tsuneyuki then transmitted the headmastership to his second son Yoshiyuki but because Yoshiyuki's personal reasons, Ueno Takashi, who was the senior student, was endowed with the genealogy as the 16th generation head (after Tsuneyuki died Yoshiyuki returned and taught some followers). In the 12th month of the 29th year of the Showa era (1954), Ueno endowed Sato Kinbei with the genealogy of the Ryu-Ha as the 17th head of Asayama Ichiden Ryu. Taijutsu and Gyakutori Bojutsu. Gyakutori Bojutsu is the Ura(inner) technique of Tanbojutsu (short stick technique).

During the time of his headship Ueno Takashi compiled an illustrated written transmission (Densho), which allowed for a Coherent transmission of the technique of this Ryu-Ha. In the 12th month of the 2nd year of the Heisei era (1990) Tanemura Shoto received the 18th generation headship from Sato Kinbei, and is the current head of the Rya-Ha.

Asayama Ichiden Ryu originally had Ten No Maki (Heaven Scroll) for swordmanship (Kenjutsu), Jin No Maki (Person Scroll) for the stick fighting (Bojutsu), and Chi No Maki (Earth Scroll) for Unarmed fighting technique (taijutsu).

However, Naganuma's transmission only included Chi No Maki, Hishigi-den (i.e Joint manipulation techniques) and Secret Oral Transmission (Kuden) of swordmanship. In Chi No Maki, there are Jodan No Kuraii, Chudan No Kuraii and Idori No Kuraii, but in our Dojo it is divided into Shoden, Chuden, Okuden, Menkyo, and Kaiden seal.

A person shall receive a Menkyo Kaiden scroll. Similarly, the designated next generation head of the Ryu-Ha shall also receive the inner teachings of Secret Technique (Hijutsu No Ura Gata), Secret transmission (hiden) and Secret Oral Transmission (Kuden).
