Hi David,

Sorry for replying to your apparently rhetorical question so much later in this thread.
In all seriousness, what about Onisaburo Deguchi?

Good point.

I meant only respecting them as budoka.

I'm sure he respected every individual he met--everyone in the world--as divine creatures.

But he would not have wanted just anyone claiming to teach his art and I think that includes Deguchi, really.

Good point, though.
