Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 18
I think these comments, these sorts of "snapshots" of history, still need to be taken with a grain of salt. They tell us very little and since Daito ryu itself has no verifiable history, and the little that we have is surrounded in goofy, odd, disconnected and very unusual pedagogy.
Little is conclusive with Takeda. I can't get attached to any statement or find any conclusions yet to Takeda's history.
