Got to agree with Pankeeki. I was in Japan in April and Sokes and Nagatos classes were packed. But Someya had a few classes when I was there. He covered the kata' history and fine points of Chuden and Okuden of Hanbo, yari and Shinden fudo ryu. No Henka' or making stuff up, just directly from densho. Yet strangely only about 12 -15 people in the class. I know where i,'m going when I go next to Japan and where not to go, but maybe more people interested in grades, taking the godan, and getting a painting than learning the correct patterns.
