  • Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu

    i didn't know where to put this, iaido or koryu, but decided to put this here.

    there are many ppl who say they are the 20th generation head master of the Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu, so who is the real one? discuss.

    here're some ppl:
    http://www.jikishin-kai.com/iaido.htm
    http://www.nyckendo.com/sensei.html
    http://www.furyu.com/wayne/Seifukan/iai/iai02.html
    http://chidokan.tripod.com/id8.html
    http://www.eishinkai.homestead.com/
    http://www.yaegaki-kai.be/index.php?inc=koryu

    as i understand, the eishin-ryu is a koryu so it doesn't have dan's, but pass down maki rolls. i have seen kataoka sensei's maki, so i'm betting on him.

    The official head of the Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu is Ikeda Takashi Soke. However, there are many lines of succession. Why do you ask?

      beacuse they all seem to say they're the heads, so how do we really know even if he is official?

                So you have a teacher - why are you worried about lineage and who is headmaster?

                    Not when you post that 'you've seen Kataoka's scrolls so he must be head'. Curious, my arse.

                        I have trained with a number of high-ranking iai teachers but I don't question their lineage. Go away. Train. Get better and stop worrying about who is fake and who is not.

                        What dojo do you train at?

                            Took 10 seconds of Googling. Have you even bothered to look at your own website?

                            http://www.nyckendo.com/sensei.html

                            The 'creator' of MJER was Oe Masamichi. He taught Yamamoto Harusuke who taught Hiromichi Yokoyama who taught Noboru Kataoka. In other words he's legit. Not a headmaster but an official teacher nevertheless.

                            Did you know he was in 'Black Rain' under the psuedonym Ken Kensei:

                            Ippon!
