Sumera Budo-juku Australia Branch

Nishioka Tsuneo Sensei

The late Nishioka Tsuneo Sensei (西岡 常夫 先生) began his training in Shinto Muso-ryu (神道夢想流) in 1938 under Shimizu Takaji Sensei (清水 隆次 先生), from whom he received menkyo-kaiden, a license of complete transmission of the ryu. Author of several books on Jodo (杖道), he established Sei Ryu Kai (清隆會), a group devoted to preserve the teachings of the late Shimizu Takaji Sensei.

Ishida Hiroaki Sensei

Ishida Hiroaki Sensei (石田 博昭 先生) began Shinto Muso-ryu training in 1966 under Hamaji Koichi Sensei (濱地 光一 先生), a senior menkyo-kaiden of Shimizu Sensei. Following Hamaji Sensei's passing in 1985, he was accepted as a direct-student (monkasei) by Nishioka Sensei and subsequently received a Seiryukai menkyo-kaiden in 1994. He was initiated into the "Gomuso no jo" by Nishioka Sensei.

Since that time Ishida Sensei continued to receive guidance from Nishioka Sensei until his recent retirement in 2011. Ishida Sensei continues to transmit the spirit and teachings of Nishioka Sensei through his school, Sumera Budo-juku, as well as through official Seiryukai gasshuku in Japan.

In 1999, Greg Clarke began training in Shinto Muso-ryu and in 2006 was introduced in person to Ishida Sensei by Nishioka Sensei. In 2007, Ishida Sensei obtained Nishioka Sensei's consent to accept Greg as his monkasei and in 2009 he was appointed as the Australian Branch representative for Sumera Budo-juku.

Greg continues to lead a small group dedicated to Seiryukai Shinto Muso-ryu in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia under the ongoing guidance of Ishida Sensei.
