Dancing Steel Dojo, located in Quiet Stream Village, [1] was a former storehouse on the southern edge of the Tsuruchi holdings. The unassuming structure was used as dojo in 1152 when Tozuken, a Wasp samurai who had been wounded in battle and could no longer serve in the field, was allowed by Tsuruchi Ichiro to teach. It tought the Tsuruchi Kenkyaku school. [2]

Tsuruchi Schism Edit

Younger members dissatisfied with the status of the Tsuruchi family gathered there, becoming the headquarters of a new philosophical faction among the younger generation. Tozuken, realizing what was taking place, retired in 1158 to a monastery and was replaced by his student Tsuruchi Shimiko. [2]
