KAMI : Hi, Chris!

I don't know if he was the 63rd headmaster of KSR but Ueshiba didn't send any of his students to him.

According to S.Pranin, the headmaster sent 3 of his instructors to the Kobukan, where Kisshomaru and a few others engaged in training for some years.

Curiously, Ueshiba Morihei Okina made the keppan with the school but NEVER trained. One wonders if he just observed or if he trained, after hours, with Kisshomaru.

Mysteries...

Thats whats been bugging me, I couldn't remember what it was, but now I do. I recall reading somewhere that some of the weapons work in KSR resembles Saito Sensei's jo kata quite closely.

Anyone care to enlighten me further?

Mike
