For other Jujutsu schools, this kata specifically represents the mindset and the kosniki principles of the Kodokan Judo. The person as the founder of the Kitouryu School is not historically clear. Terada Mitsuhide had already stated his name as the originator in the scroll of Jikishinryu School in at Isumo.
Consequently it seems reasonable to assume that Ibaragi Toshinobu is the founder of the Kitouryu School. He had relations with Yagyu Munekane on early time. Ibaragi and Munekane got trained on the Zen Philosophy at the Tokai temple.
Takuan taught Fudochi, Munekane and Ibaragi. The later disciple found that the martial art is the most important method to build the right psychology for the fighting skill development.
Consequently, he established the Kitouryu school based on a specific philosophy. Later his high pupil claimed that Yoshimura Sukenaga wrote the Kitouryu scroll under the name [Ten no maki][Chi no maki][ Hito no maki] [Hontai].
Hontai Hontai has a significant meaning: As a whole, it comes from the shape of the body Katachi and its use from the nature energy Ki. If you follow the right philosophy or principles, the correct shape of body Katachi moves in silence Sei.

This scroll of Hontai was delivered to the students of Kitouryu School at first. The purpose of Kitouryu training is kaha following: Therefore you keep the body right and you keep your heart right aside from selfishness.
This is a short historical genealogy of the Kitouryu School diffusion: Iikubo Kounen was born in Edo. He studied Kitouryu School from Takenaka Tetsunosuke since his young age. Then, he served as a teacher of Military Arts of the Shogunate. He was called an expert of the Kitouryu School. He developed a style inspired from the ancient warrior style when he was Also, he built superior expertise in the throwing techniques; especially his Haraigoshi and his Yokosutemiwaza were quite unique and very efficient.
Iikubo Sensei was a great teacher for Kano Jigoro and he always taught Kano shihan until Meijiafter Kano Jigoro became a teacher. At this time, he jata 50 and Kano Jigoro could not succeed in winning by Randori against him until this time. Around Meiji 18Kano Jigoro specially experienced the Kuzushi principle on this day dedicated to Randori.
Kano Jigoro tried Kuzushi at first and then he used Waza techniques. Ikubo Sensei was Kitouryu Nagewaza specialist.
But strangely he could not to throw Kano Jigoro by Nagewaza.
At this time Kano Jigoro deeply understood the principle of Kuzushi. Then, Kano Jigoro reported this research result to Iikubo Sensei. He replied that Kano Jigoro was right.
Consequently he advised Kano Jigoro to practice randori with young opponents and he stopped practicing randori with Kano. Finally Iikudo provided Kano with a diploma of the Kitouryu School and as well as many scrolls.
Kano Shihan studied Kitouryu School and Tenjinshinyoryu school. He found many superior points from these schools of Kata and Nagewaza throwing techniques compared to others. Kano Shihan gave a lecture about “Judo and educational value”. The Minister of Education Mr. Enomoto Buyou, numerous ambassadors of foreign countries, personalities and 20 best disciples of Kodokan attended this lecture. The Kodokan Judo magazine published this lecture on April Showa 50 This lecture did include a summary, some purpose for the practice of Judo and a required set of practical skills.
Kano Shihan did express the real intention regarding the creation of Judo, while explaining the reason for changing the name from Jujutsu to Judo. For example, I am in a standing position and a partner comes to throw me. Then the partner pulls me to the front or pushes me backwards; finally the opponent tries to throw me away by Nagewaza.
Finally the opponent is not able to throw me away. When the partner tries to throw a person away, this person tends to be scared and to lose his standing position; finally he loses his balance. It is called Hontai the main body or Shizen Hontai. Let’s put up other examples. Human beings always stand on their two legs. It can support the weight of the entire body with both legs. A method to throw a person more easily is to be able to put the weight of the person on one leg where the motion area is the narrowest.
This is the principle of Kuzushi.
Kano Shihan said koshikl when an amateur looked at this demonstration of Kitouryu no kata, probably he would not understand what it was. Especially, this Kata seems to represent the noblest with regards to other Jujutsu schools.

Then, he named it “Koshiki no kata” and he kept it within the Kata curriculum of Kodokan Judo. We can estimate at what time it was named “Kosahiki no Kata”. As a conclusion, Meiji 34 was the date when Koshiki no kata was officially named.
It was also organized as a Kata according to a teaching mode. This includes Idori sitting formTachiai standing form and Ikiai cross walking form. It has several similarities with the Kime no kata. In addition, there are additional techniques such an arrest method, a rest method after injury, and a method to provide medicine.
Each Jujutsu school did establish its own characteristics of content and technique style. In general, samurai did wear armor and two sets of techniques were taught: Kodokan Judo did name it for the first time.
Kano Shian did preserve this Kata by keeping these forms within the Koshiki no kata at the Kodokan Judo. After my graduation, I became a teacher of the physical education at the Udayama senior high school of Mie prefecture.
At that time, learning Judo was prohibited in Senior High Schools. There was the competition facing Kyushu prefecture and Kansai prefecture. It is called a Shinsei Judo Competition. I still have in my mind the vivid memory of the fight with Kimura Masahiko at this competition. It became obvious for me to match his level of experience. Right after, I started devoting myself to Judo. Then, I worked as a research assistant at the Kodokan in Show 23 Nakaoka Sensei was an expert of Yokosutemi waza Ukiwaza and Koshiki no kata.
In Koshiki no kata, just after the salutation ReiTori moves one step forward and takes Shizenhontai. This movement looks like a simple movement. But, I understood that it was a very difficult step. Nagaoka Sensei said that this step does not use only legs; this step must use the main body with Ki power. Until now, I can evaluate the level of Kata performed by a student by just looking at this one step. Nakaoka sensei taught very deep and insightful instructions.
He got a small body. However, his one step was like a mountain seemingly moving. I remember that he did magnify the Koshikk no kata with his high level of dignity. He died 77 on 22 November Showa27 just one day before the celebration of Kodokan 70th year of foundation. I studied Koshiki no kata from him during 4 years and half. At that time I was missing a lot of skills and I was only able to understand the form of Koshiki no kata, not the meaning. I was his last student. Now, I understand the depth and the difficulty of learning Kata.
There is no meaning to attack Uke with a forefinger and then to use Waza to throw him away. There are many books on Koshiki no kata, but they only describe only forms and Nagare movement. The portion on “why” is not written. When I was young, I should have learned it from Nagaoka Sensei more seriously. I sincerely regret it.
