Dr. Koryu Muramatsu

 

In 1972, after many years training with various teachers and participating in several “matches” in surrounding countries, he met Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi, Headmaster of the Bujinkan Dojo.  After decades of training in the Bujinkan, he rose to become one of the senior students of Hatsumi, Sensei.  He then formed his research society/dojo and continues to teach and train in both Okinawan Karate and Nihonden Bujutsu.

Dr. Muramatsu also practices Chinese Medicine at his clinic, Myofu-An Seitai-in, where he utilizes Seikottsu bone-setting, Seitai manual therapy, and Reflexology.
