For anyone that did not know, Yagyu Nobuharu Toshimichi the 21st soke of Yagyu Shinkage Ryu passed away the morning of May the 4 at age 88. He was a highly regarded swordsmen for his skill and the legacy he left behind.

He will be greatly missed.

Was there a successor studying with him or did everything went chaotic?

Mike,

Welcome to the board. Glad to finally see a Yagyu Shinkage ryu member here. I look forward to your addition to our koryu conversations.

Thank you for the information. I'm extremely busy these past month, and therefore "out of the loop".

I'm rather surprised to see a new soke of that age though. Is it common in Yagyu Shinkage ryu to name older soke?
Most of the ko-ryu I know of skip a generation so that the new soke is in his mid-thirties or so.

Sorry for the thread necromancy, but since the article that I translated was referenced here, I thought I'd just address this question.

"Older" or "younger" don't really have much to do with it. The headmastership has passed down from father to qualified son in the Owari Yagyu family, or to qualified lords of Owari-han. Nobuharu-sensei had no children, so Koichi-sensei, as a long-time practitioner and direct descendant of Yagyu Sekishusai in the Owari Yagyu line, was the obvious choice. His age is probably in his favor, as it allowed him to take early retirement and devote himself fully to the ryu. Being soke is essentially his job right now.
