I believe these three Iga ryu-ha as is the art you described as a Koga ryu-ha ? (sound was Sketchy at that point on you tube) are all chugoko kenpo (china hand/quan fa) or certainly modified versions of it.
Gyokko Ryu (“Jeweled/Jade Tiger School) is a Koryu Japanese Martial Art of Koshijutsu (Nerve Striking Technique) believed to have originated in China during the Heian Period,officially founded in 1156 AD. It stems from a style of Chinese Shitojutsu (lit. “Finger Blade Tehcnique) where striking with the fingers is emphasized. It was transmitted mostly orally from teacher to student before being documented by Takamatsu Toshitsugu and Masaaki Hatsumi.
Koto Ryu was formalized into a Ryu-Ha by the 15th Soke of Gyokko Ryu Koshijutsu, Sakagami Taro Kunishige, hence much of the overlap with between the kihon (“basics”) of Gyokko and Koto Ryu. Although the precise origins are unknown, it is believed to have been imported from either China or Korea.
Shinden fudo ryu
zumo Kanja studied Chinese Kempo Boxing, which influence is still visible in some of the techniques. Izumo is also credited as the founder of Kukishinden Ryu – making these two ryu-ha closely related. However, the art found it’s way into the Iga region through the 2nd Soke – Minamoto Hachiman Tamenari – during the Genyei Era. It’s theorized this might have been due to a loss in a battle.
It’s also interesting to note that Takenaka Tetsunoke, senior student of Jigoro Kano who founded Judo, was at one time a student at the Shinden Fudô Ryû dôjô.
Chin na (catch and hold) influenced the kansetsu waza of jujutsu, aikijutsu, and aikido along with tuide of Okinawan karate. Chin na stems from quan fa along with Shuai jiao chinese jacket wrestling (judo/Jujujutsu/jiujitsu) throws. list is endless.
