But lets put things into perspective. Meik Skoss for years let the representative of Kazearashi ryu demonstrate with his dojo for the first of the year demonstration that he hosted. It later turned out that not only was Kazearashi ryu NOT a koryu, but a school created outside of Japan with all of the senior students in on the BS. Not so long ago, Wayne Muromoto commented on the Ogawa ryu and stated that he at first thought all the mistake he saw were due to the fact that they were being done by gaijin and not Japanese. It was not until the dealt with the still rather unknown matter of the tea ceremony that he was able to tell that the Ogawa folks were making things up based on things they could get off of the internet and not personal instruction. 20 years ago it was much easier to spot fakes. Now with so many folks posting things to youtube, it has gotten a lot harder unless you have lived in the country, learned the language and gone to lessons to tell what is real and what is not. So for the average fork to understand is beyond the realms of reason IMO.
