Having just participated in a seminar on Yamane-Ryu's version of Shuji no Kon, I was curious if anyone here practices Yamane-Ryu? It is a fairly distinctive style, and I found it's body mechanics to be very interesting.

Directly, no! Indirectly, yes!

What I do like about Yamane-Ryu is their exclusivity of the Rokushaku Bo, and if one wants to be proficient with a bo, Yamane-Ryu is a way to go. And I LOVE the Bo more than other Kobudo weapons.

I'm not really a kobudo guy, but there was a time when I was tested and certified for proficiency with the bo. As it stands, I can only mostly remember 1 of the 3 bo kata I used to know, and the other two are forgotten. The Shuji no Kon that I learned over the weekend is somewhat close to the Shuji no Kon I used to practice, so the pattern was pretty easy to pick up, although the body mechanics are distinctly different. My Sensei practices the Kokusai Rengokai system of kobudo, which is Nakazato Shugoro's curriculum, and that Shuji no Kon actually comes from Yamane-Ryu, but Nakazato Sensei tweaked it to be more like his karate. Still, it was close enough that my Sensei picked up the pure Yamane-Ryu version pretty easily.

I've been limited to Hokama Kobudo in my training, as well as my training in Arnis with staff and stick work.

Do you have any links, videos or links you can share on Yamane-Ryu?

You have sparked my interest.

Well, you can pretty easily find Yamane-Ryu material online, although it can come with many names; Yamane-Ryu, Yamanni-Ryu, Yamani Chinen-Ryu, etc. As Gutierrez Sensei explained during our Gasshuku, there are many branches of Yamane-Ryu, because there are many ways to use it, depending on your body and preferences.

Here is a video that Gutierrez Sensei made of some bo exercises for Yamane-Ryu, though, if that helps?
