Mune-yoshi Yagiyu got acquainted with Hide-tsuna Kami-izumi in 1563 (A. D.). At that time, Mune-yoshi was thirty-five years old and he was commonly acknowledged that he was one of the greatest swordsmen ever known. But, realizing that Hide-tsuna's talents was supreme far ever, he hoped to become a pupil of Hide-tsuna, and he studied under Hide-tsuna.Later, Mune-yoshi was qualified for the teacher of Kage-Style by Hide-tsuna.I have some questions as follows, what style he had learned before.I suppose as follows.Yagiyu-shin-kage-ryu-engi which was transmitted to the Yagiyu family in 0-wari district was suggested him to belong Shin-to Style, and the annals of the Yagiyu family in Edo district was suggested him to belong Toda Style.Shin- kage Style is said that was added to new idea to Kage Style that was created by Iko-sai Aisu. I think that it had not a simple progress, but especially Yagiyushin-kage Style was performed a merit of Shin-to Style, Toda Style and various styles. Then I would like to know and study more about those relation by the comparison the literature on this subject.
