What school is greater, Iga-ryū or Wǔdāngquán?

Which do you prefer? Maybe Shaolin Qigong?


  1. The Wǔdāngquán have thousands of students, all over the world.
    The Iga-ryū has precisely zero.
    The conclusion seems fairly obvious to me 😀

  2. The fact that the Iga-ryÅ« is not in practice has nothing to do with it’s teachings or its skill level. They dominated from about 1487-1745. They defeated Oda Nobunaga’s son Oda Nobukatsu. Nobunaga then attacked from six directions with a force of 40,000 to 60,000 men. Although the lost, they still weren’t wiped out. Later Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu had them guard Edo Castle. If you ask me Iga-ryÅ« has played more of a dominant role in our history.
