    Uh, no. Not legit at all. Complete and utter baseless childish fantasy garbage.

    I'm not saying that they're authentic (I'd be hard to persuade that they are, unless that's just the name, albeit very badly chosen, or a dojo of a legit org), but the clunky language isn't quite...

    Hi Johan,

    Obviously deferring to Hyaku here, as he will be far better informed, but you could start with this clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2YbZIEI5Gg

    Hi Grega,

    Interesting post! I've come across a few others that have similar ideas (separating out "Koryu Bujutsu" and "Koryu Budo"), although I haven't come across any Japanese instructors or Soke...

    Hi James,

    Didn't like the answers you got over on MAP? Okay, I'll add to it here (MAP can be a difficult place to get straight answers...).

    Yeah, the split is pretty much political. Still makes it a modern off-shoot, though. Hakko Ryu has a fairly unbending rule about not training in anything else, so to claim it as Hakko Ryu itself...

    Yep, agreed on all that Andreas. It is absolutely within the rights of a Soke to alter the teachings as they see fit, or most appropriate. Interesting that there wasn't an "Itto Ryu" initially (as a...

    Cool, thanks for that. To be honest, from the reports around the place, I don't think it's a hybrid of anything, other than in name. I think it's just what Fred thought swordsmanship...
