Re: Anyone heard of "Takeda Ryu"?

AFAIK, there was a group, as I mentioned, in northern Japan practicing a sogo budo koryu called 'Takeda Ryu' that had no relation whatsoever to the Takedas of the Ueshiba lineage.

There are a couple of groups in the west claiming to be practicing a "Takeda Ryu" that _is_ an offshoot of Takeda's Daito Ryu. Again, AFAIK, there's no empirical evidence that those folks have any legitimate connection with either Daito Ryu or the other (non-aikijujutsu) Takeda Ryu.
