About this title

About the Author:

Otake Risuke Minamoto no Takeyuki is presently the only authorized master teacher (shihan) of Tenshinsho-den Katori Shinto-ryu. Born in Daei, Chiba Prefecture, in 1926, he began training in Katori Shinto-ryu under Hayashi Yazaemon Shihan in 1942. When Katori Shinto-ryu was designated an Intangible Cultural Asset in 1960, he was named as one of the official Guardians of the ryu, was concurrently awarded gokui kaiden, the highest level license in Shinto-ryu, and was appointed to be the shihan of the tradition. He opened his Shinbukan Dojo in Narita, Chiba Prefecture, in 1964, and has been responsible for training the current generation of Katori Shinto-ryu practitioners, including the late Donn Draeger and current shidosha Phil Relnick. He has also worked to increase the public's understanding of the classical martial arts and Tenshinsho-den Katori Shinto-ryu through countless domestic and overseas demonstrations, television appearances, magazine articles, and choreography for television and films.
