    Default Names of the Developers of Nihon Kendo Kata

    So, at those times when I start to think I'm getting decent at Japanese, I've been breaking out and plodding through Takano Sasaburo's "Kendo" and "Kendo Kyohon". In the introduction of the kata section in "Kendo" he lists the main developers of the Dai Nippon Teikoku Kendo Kata. They are himself and four others. However, proper names are probably my weakest point in Japanese. So, could anyone help with these? The names he lists are:

    From the Butokukai Headquarters:
    内藤高治
    門奈正
    From Tokyo:
    根信五郎
    From Kyushu:
    辻眞平

    And help would be appreciated.

    I also posted this over at Kendo World.

    Confirmed:
    内藤高治 - Naitou Takaharu
    門奈正 - Monna Tadashi

    Confirmed (there's a missing kanji):
    根信五郎 → 根岸信五郎 → Negishi Shingorou


    Not confirmed, but pretty sure this is it:
    辻眞平 - Tsuji Shinpei

    Cross-referencing with Looking At A Far Mountain -- yes, Tsuji Shinpei is listed, as are the other four above, as being on the second committee of December, 1911 (Meiji 44).
