The author (Shiro Omiya) claims to have been a student of Tsuruyama Kozui (an 8th dan under Takuma Hisa). I trained with a number of folks in Tokyo who spent many years with Tsuruyama, and when I asked them about Omiya and Tsuruyama the answer was "Well, I suppose that you could call yourself somebody's student even if you never trained with them more than once".

Best,

Chris
