    There are other people better qualified to discuss the specifics in detail, but I would say it is very different from Katori Shinto-ryu- Warrior Tradition. Warrior Tradition serves as kind of an...

    While I am not the original poster, I would suspect he meant the 4 sets of solo waza and not just four waza. 7 Toho waza makes me think of the DNIR which broke off from the ZNIR and then added a...

    The teacher is a Hoki-ryu instructor who is in the ZNIR but what he is demonstrating is ZNIR's toho/seitei and not Hoki-ryu. Hoki-ryu has no horizontal draws for one.

    I remember coming across one of his books on aiki several years ago. From what I recall he emphasized the Sagawa/Daito-ryu connection more than aikido at the time, but this was back around 2008 or...
