There are two lines of Shojitsu Kata Ichi Kenri ryu in Okayama, one is the Kacchu iaijutsu school and the other is the kenjutsu line. The iaijutsu line is headed by Kanzaki Masaru sensei, who is also a shihan in Takenouchi-ryu (sodenke line).

When you get to Japan and are settled, go look up the Nihon Kobudo Kyokai, a lot of teachers I know personally in other koryu have been complaining about "koryu tourists" coming over for a couple of lessons and just taking photos.

If you really want to know, you'll investigate and find out. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Hi Steve,

Thank you for the information!
I will look up, but I can say that I will not be "koryu tourist" ;)

Best Regards,
