Re: A hodgepodge system, in an information age.
One thing I wanted to mention, Please don't mistake real Koryu for any art that has ryu in the title. I would guess that 95% of arts with ryu as part of the title are modern and fake. They are based on something but only go back a few years when the arts founder made up the name and claimed a title like "Grand Master" or "head Master".etc.
True Koryu like Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo is at least 600 years old and its linage and students can be traced back for generations.
