What is Kogaku Ryuha?, first let us start with the name Kogaku, which translated means Classical studies. Ryuha means school. So Kogaku Ryuha simply means a school of classical studies, With in the fabric of Kogaku Ryuha the disciplines taught are Toyama Ryu Morinaga ha Iaido, Mugai Ryu Iaihyodo/Kenjutsu, Nihon Kabudo and Dentonkan Jujutsu,
Kyoshi Aloe has a culmination of 48 years of martial arts experience, influenced by his past teachers and professors. His foundation of strong basics, structurally sound techniques, and a deep understanding of heihou no michi (the way of strategy,) provides a unique learning experience for students. Aloe Sensei is a "Jikisan-hatamotos" (Direct disciple of Atushi Shimojo Soke) and is the So-Shibucho director of the United States for the Dai Nippon Iaido Kyokai, and the Kokusai Budo Koryu Kyokai (Uiji Japan) . Aloe Sensei is also a direct student of Hanshi Roy Hobbs Menkyo Kaiden studying Dentokan Aiki Jujutsu and is a member of Sekai Dentokan Bugei Renmei.
Reishiki or Etiquette
Our studies follow a very strong code of conduct, embellishing Reishiki as was adhered to in the old koryu schools (pre 1866.)
Through the study of Kogaku Ryuha the students will unequivocally have a chance to realize not only a unification of mind, body, and spirit. But also a unity of East and West, as well as a union of humanity with the way of the universe.
We are a closed organization, and any serious traditional martial artist or dojo wanting either affiliation or cross training must study the arts within Kogaku Ryuha.
