Takahashi Soke was a student of the Tenshin Katori Shinto Ryu in Japan, and Kentsu Yabu and Choshin Chibana of Okinawa. During 1953, Takahashi Soke founded his own organization and here he began teaching to small groups of selected students, where he concentrated teaching and emphasizing the traditional ideology and the spirituality of Koryu bujutsu (old style martial arts).
