Hi Erik,

I was supprised to see that the kumitachi are not the same ones as Saito's (though I thought they were excellent in themselves), where do they derive from? Also the first kumijo is what I would consider the 2nd kumijo. Are these the accepted forms now in most of the US? (I refer back to the kmitachi & kumijo in 1974, so Saito may have updated them later on).
I'm not Greg, but Greg has it correct. I don't think you could say what most of the US does as we have all kinds of different things going on.
