Shihan Yamada Toshiyasu is a gifted artist, who is highly skilled at working with wood and drawing.



He has devoted his life to the study, preservation and teaching of Sekiguchi Ryu and is a person who possesses considerable knowledge about Japanese traditions, culture and other Japanese - Koryu and modern martial arts: 

Ju-Jutsu, Kiko traditional medicine, Kyusho-Jutsu and full contact Karate. He also studies Brazilian Jujutsu once a week, just for fun.



He knows a lot about medicine and has a true connection with the natural world. Shihan Yamada is one of the few rare Japanese Sword Masters. 



Who truly and entirely pass on their art and knowledge to non-Japanese people with "honest care and dedication".



Shihan owns many non-public scrolls teaching about Sekiguchiryu, therefore: he is one of the very few people alive today, who possess a deep insight into this Martial Art system.



His skills are further enriched by Kurokawa-Ryu, which specialise in criminal capture.
