"Yagyu Shinkage Ryu is one of the greatest and most famous Japanese schools of swordsmanship or kenjutsu. Its name roughly means "Yagyu New Shadow School," Yagyu being the name of the family which came to head the school at the end of the 16th century. It grew out of a school headed by Kamiizumi Nobutsuna, who named Yagyu Muneyoshi his successor in 1565. Today, the Yagyu school remains one of the most widely practiced schools of Japanese swordsmanship." (From Wikipedia)
