This substyle was founded in the sixteenth century by the samurai Tekenouchi Hisamori (also known as Toichiro Takeuchi). According to a legend Takenouchi learned several secret techniques of immobilization and weapons use from a ghostly yamabushi, or mountain hermit, who stressed the advantages of short weapons over longer ones. Takenouchi used these techniques as a basis and then added to them maneuvers from such fighting arts as Sumo Wrestling, an older form of wrestling called sumai, and kumi-uchi (designed for use by armored warriors). Thus he developed a style which stresses various techniques of immobilizing ones opponent. It also teaches combat with short swords (kogusoku) and daggers.
