In , during the Yeiroku era , in the Funagata Yama mountain area of Miyagi, there was a Chinese mountain priest, from the Abe family, called Unryu Cloud Dragon. He was an expert in the yari, shuriken, bojutsu, naginata and taijutsu from the Amatsu Tatara Rinpo Hiden Makimono. Some historians have said that Unryu came from Hieizaenji Yama in Kyoto. He studied Sessho hiden no jutsu, a system that uses the yari. The Sessho hiden no jutsu is also known as the Juppo sessho no jutsu. Regardless, if he was a Chinese Taoist and a master of Spear, it is likely that he would have been experience in Bazi Quan, which would later be called Baji Quan.
For example, he taught his system with the yari to a samurai from Katakura Kojuro in Fukushima province named Ito Ki-i Morisatada also called Ito Sukesada. Historically, the actual founder of this Tagaki Yoshin Ryu was Takagi Oriemon Shigenobu — , who arrived at the Amatsu Tatara Rinpo Hiden taijutsu school a few generations later. Takagi Oriemon had learned this school with the second generation, but the problem with the Takenouchi family is that they never give the inner movement, the deepest understanding to someone from outside of the family.
That was one of the main rules back in the 14th and 16th century. But he learned enough to create his own school. He received many things and with that he had many matches, fights, and duels with many people. Also, by the time we enter the 20th Century, the situation had arisen whereby a number of students of one teacher had been named soke of the school.
This meant you had different branches of the school, all with different names. Mizuta was apparently a very charismatic and sharing character, but he only taught martial arts, he had no other way to make a living. This meant that to make ends meat, he sold quite a few Menkyo Kaidens to various students in order to eat. However, when he met Takamatsu sensei, it was he whom he chose to write out an entire scroll for Tagaki Yoshin Ryu, since Takamatsu supposedly had beautiful hand-writing as well as a good knowledge of Chinese characters.
And although he was only 17, Takamatsu Sensei was able to copy and learn the art in just one year, due to his previous training with Toda Sensei. In terms of the school itself, there are no set kamae as in other schools, but the way of sitting on the floor is important. There are various methods, the same as in Shinden Fudo Ryu, and your ability to maintain a straight spine, a focus, an awareness, will dictate your spiritual attitude Kamae.
