About me

Threadgill Sensei is Kaicho of Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin Ryu and is not a contributor to this site at this time. He appears here as a reference point to recommend his teaching and direct visitors to his site.





Toby Threadgill-sensei began training under Takamura Yukiyoshi, headmaster of Takamura-ha Shindo Yoshin-ryu (TSYR), in 1985.
