Three years later (2000) at the European Butoku Sai U.K., Hanshi Allan demonstrated again, along with his Dan grades, each pair demonstrating his techniques fast and furious. The closing day was also a presentation day, Hanshi, who for the past few years had been ratified in all aspects including his skills on the mats, the Hanshi board concluded in awarding him with the first ever Hanshi in Jujutsu to a non-Japanese, from the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai, and his outstanding style be entered in the D.N.B.K. scrolls Forever to be known as, MYO SHIN RYU meaning: BRIGHTNESS, ESSENCE, TRUTH, OF TECHNIQUE.
A style that denies and excludes brutality, and aggression, and relies on skill, and pure technique to defeat attackers in a non violent way with minimum efforts, and not to destroy another human being! Myo Shin Ryu is open for development within the student for his/her own size, gender and weight.
Hanshi Tattersall is well renowned throughout the world for his skill. Going into his 70's, for hours showing technique after technique not doing the same technique twice, changing form one technique to another. For 1 technique he does 5 and for 5 techniques he does 25! Hanshi Tattersall is quite unique in Martial Arts. He usually picks people same size or bigger than him rather than smaller to show the effectiveness of Myo Shin Ryu. His life time dedication to Martial Arts made him what he is today. Indeed one of the finest Jujutsu Masters this world has seen.
This is MYO SHIN RYU, a living monument to a person who for decades has been loyal to the art, its cultures and origins. Myo Shin Ryu is developed on the Classical systems of Japanese Budo. Without destroying the art and without breaking from the roots of Jujutsu as it correctly is, he is Soke of his own Ryu, MYO SHIN RYU, forever known as an authentic style of Jujutsu.
