Meifu Shinkage-ryū (明府真影流) is a modern Shurikenjutsu-School, which was founded in the 1970s by Chikatoshi Someya (染谷親俊, Someya Chikatoshi). Its roots could mainly be found in the Shurikenjutsu of Tenshin Shōden Katori Shintō-ryū (天真正伝香取神道流).

Description[edit]

The Meifu Shinkage-ryū (明府真影流?) is a modern school of Shuriken Jutsu.[1] It was founded by Chikatoshi Someya (染谷親俊?, Someya Chikatoshi) in the 1970s. Someya was a student of Yoshio Sugino of the Katori Shintō-ryū, although the throwing style used in Meifu Shinkage-ryū is different. Someya refined the Katori style of throwing, making it shorter, faster and more concealed.

The Meifu Shinkage-ryū is a small school of about 30 students who train in Tokyo, Japan under the instruction of the present Sōke, Yasuyuki Ôtsuka. This school is almost entirely composed of students of other martial arts schools. Ôtsuka welcomes students from any art or country. Currently around 200 international students train in Meifu Shinkage-ryū (Otsuka, personal communication October 18, 2016), divided in official Branches and Keikokai (study groups). Ôtsuka calls himself a "shuriken teacher and researcher." There is a specific kind of shuriken called a Meifu Shinkage-ryū shuriken, but Ôtsuka teaches and students will often practice throwing shuriken from many different schools, most of which are now extinct.
