I would offer that you check with John on this before you go forward
It can be difficult to train here and there and then be on film stating
Okomoto does this
Yanagi ryu does that
Kodokai does this
There is a well known guy in the Northeast who did just that and made a fool out of himself selling videos and then going up against some men who actually
understood the work this guy was only mimicing.
All is not as it appears either by rank, copying others material, or by affilliation...huh?
See you soon, bud.
