Re: Haruo Matsuoka's tsuki no kamae
Having had the opportunity to actually train with Matsuoka Sensei, IMHO, we are making too much of a bad picture.
I never say him with the blade up, IMHO, just a human mistake.
Too many of us from an Aikido background keep our first finger out, even on the sword, just another human mistake.
One student picture out of context does not a statement about a sensei/system make.
