It's by Yoshitoshi, signing "Ikkaisai Yoshitoshi ga" 一魁斎芳年画.
This is a design from an 1865 series entitled "Yūmei bujutsu no homare" 勇名武術之誉 ("Brave Masters of the Art of War"). The series is catalogued on J. Noel Chiappa's Yoshitoshi catalogue raisonné, but I cannot find much other information online:
I found an image of another design from the series online which bears the seal of publisher Yorozuya Zentarō 万屋善太郎 (Marks 21-129). Marks does not list this series in the entry for that publisher.
