Greetings Obata Soke,

I am a Shinkendo student of Moore Sensei in Champaign, IL. I would like first to thank you for taking the time to answer all of our questions. It's been great to read your responses to all the questions thus far.

My question concerns an earlier thread concerning ninpo and ninjutsu. What are you thoughts/opinions concerning Dr. Masaki Hatsumi, inheritor of the Togakura ryu of ninpo (among other ryu-ha) and the fact that supposedly what he teaches is authentic ninpo/ninjutsu.

thanks in advance,

Trevis Crane
