Mark, here is the statement you made that I was responding to. Maybe I just confused your use of pronouns?
IMO, you would almost have to work with other Daito ryu groups to see exactly what they can do. If not, then you only have your own school to judge by.
As far as training goes, come by anytime. Chris and I train in Baltimore MD...more like Rosedale, MD. We rent space from the head teacher of Baltimore Brazilian JiuJuitsu. He's a great guy and a good grappler as well.
You can PM me for more details if you're serious.
