Yes, any difference other than lineage, etc. is distance. Much of my judo lineage comes down from Mifune Sensei, Kotani Sensei, and Osawa Sensei primarily. My goal was tadashi judo but got side tracked at one point by kyogi judo. I saw the light.
Whatever we do and however we train, it must end in our personal authority that originates from our own discovery and responsibility.
Needless to say, that responsibility is to always be flexible and willing to kill yesterday's practice to attain today's practice.
I'll be in your neck of the woods soon. Next month I'll be teaching at Phil Relnick's Shintokan in Woodinville the weekend of the 17th. And then I'm moving up there in a few months. My son just bought a house about 15 minutes north of that dojo. We will be building our own dojo on his property at soon as possible. You're welcome to visit anytime.
