The Shotozumi Uprising was the revolt by Shotozumi-gumi of the Yakuza.

During the early 2060s, the Shotozumi-gumi broke away from Watada-rengo because of how Oyabun Watada treated its members. He was ultimately successful and established the Shotozumi-rengo in the Americas.[1] Watada-rengo was able to crush the Shotozumi uprising within Japan itself.[2]
