The Aiki Jujutsu system known today as Kaze Arashi Ryu (Wind Storm Tradition) saw its origin in the late Edo, Meiji, and Taisho periods and was taught in “Kazemura” (Wind Village).
The founding of Kaze Arashi Ryu as it is practiced today is credited to Nishiyama Shiro. When one of his sons died he took on the responsibility of raising his grandson, Nishiyama Akihiro. The young Nishiyama excelled in the practice of the arts taught to him by his grandfather, despite having been born with a slightly hunched back. Like his grandfather before him he began his professional life as an educator and rose to become a school principal. He also travelled widely in Japan and observed many martial arts schools. In order to facilitate learning (as he was an educator) Nishiyama went about reclassifying the knowledge passed down to him. The empty hand studies were renamed Aiki Ju Jutsu and Atemi Jutsu; all lengths of sword and bladed weapons were categorised in the Ken Jutsu syllabus and all lengths of staff and staff-like weapons, with or without a blade, fell under the heading of Jo Jutsu.
Sensei Leonard Samuel Marshall learned the art from the Nishiyama family and instructed Sensei Robert Vilaire directly. He in-turn instructed Sensei Srinivasan Sastri. Sensei Ramesh Rao learnt this traditional art from Sensei Sastri. The Art has stayed alive for the last two thousand years and like a dance, it flows.
