    I see nothing useful about this forum. I now understand why so few people ever post here. Goodbye.

    To all,

    Mr. Scott does seem to know quite a bit about classical Japanese arts, and Mr. Covington may know a lot about Mr. Kondo’s organization. However, their statements about these issues are...

    Mr. Scott,

    Your explanation to Mr. Clark was very well stated.

    Many of those I know like me, who...

    I met Mr. Rodney Uhler, President of NineCirclesUSA and a senior student of Okabayashi Shogen sensei, at a seminar recently. He told me that he received a Menkyo in Ono-ha Itto Ryu from Okabayashi...

    Mr. Scott,

    Thank you for your clarification and the revelation that you possess copies of documents shown to you by Mr. Kondo (since that is how you refer to him, I will as well).

    I made it...

    Mr. Covington,

    While I would be happy to train with Kondo sensei, I don't like the character of his students, as demonstrated by you on this forum.

    I won't be joining your organization--ever....
  8. Mr. Scott, Thank you for your posts. ...

    Mr. Scott,

    Thank you for your posts.

    Obviously, you are aligned with Kondo sensei's group. I mention this, because the originator of this thread asked for comments from people who trained with...

    Thank you, Mr. Reyer.

    I conceded the point on appropriateness, in context. Appropriate words, of course, can be used to imply other meanings. In any case, I apologized if Mr. Covington's intent...

    Mr. Covington,

    You have me there. You are right that one is not necessarily being disrespectful by calling someone Mister rather than Sensei. Of course, it can be disrespectful in context. If I...

    Mr. Covington,

    Your premise is faulty, again.

    I never said that I was unaware of the events surrounding the purported succession of Kondo sensei or the alleged promotions he was given by the...

    Mr. Covington,

    First, I don't speak for Certa Shihan or his organization. I speak for myself, only.

    You don't know me and I don't know you. My perception of you is based solely on these few of...
