Re: Steven Seagal's sword work

Sensei: This is an interesting story. I was in Kyoto and there was a sword master by the name of Onoha Ittoryu,very very good at the inside stuff .Mifune, the Japanese actor, was to do "The Challenge." The guy who choreographed all the famous director Kurosawa's stuff, "Red Beard", "Seven Samurai" and all that had just died.
Ok, sorry, but this is REALLY rich. Ono Ha Itto Ryu is the name of a STYLE...not a PERSON!

Ron (I really hope Seagal S. didn't make that mistake, and it was just someone transcribing what he said who made the error...)

I should also note that just because something is on the internet, doesn't make it true...take what you find with a grain of salt, check their facts, ask questions like you did here. Now, the really important part....LISTEN when folks try to set straight something that is obviously false on its face...
