History of Kukishin Ryu
The Kuki family line started from Ryushin Yakushimaru, a member of the Fujiwara clan. Ryushin Yakushimaru studied Shugendo and the martial arts of Shinden Fujiwara Musō ryū, Kuji-hihō and Onmyo-do.
After the battle at Kuragari-Tōge, where he saved the Emperor Godaigo, the emperor changed his family name from Fujiwara to Ku-ki or literaly Ku-Kami, the nine demons.
The school's lineage is well documented in the Bugei Ryuha Daijiten, the Japanese compendium of martial systems written in the 1963. It has different branches out side of the Takamatsu den schools.
