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?

KAMI : I believe it might have been in Stanley Pranin's, THE AIKI NEWS ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AIKIDO and it refers to the first set of KSR and Aikijo.

As to the 63rd headmaster, cited by Chris, I'm worried because the most ancient ryu in Japan (except some dubious schools), with more than 400 years of history, are just up to the 30th headmaster. I guess I'll have to take a look in my books tomorrow...
