Well seeing as I have not posted in awhile and I need to get back in the swing of things, I will give you a bit of info. But before I go any further, GOOGLE WAS INVENTED FOR A REASON!

Otake Risuke is the current Shihan of Tenshinsho Den Katori Shinto ryu (天真正伝香取神道流), well technically his oldest son Nobutoshi succeeded him this year. This is one of the two oldest extant ryu around. And Otake shihan is considered to be one of the greatest practitioners of koryu bujutsu alive today. He is the author of the two most insightful books about TSKSR available to the English speaking world, or maybe I should say the non-Japanese speaking world. There have been several articles published about him, and TSKSR. Also there is a wealth of video footage featuring Otake shihan doing various kata from TSKSR.

Now seeing as how I do not think this can be repeated enough, before you ask an asinine question do some research. Now grated some things are hard to find. But you asked a question that could offend those people who train in TSKSR, since there is enough info out there on this subject to keep you occupied for days. Just remember before you ask something find all you can about it. And word your question to show that you have some understanding of the topic. This way you will learn more, and people want just overlook your question because you asked such a broad and uninformed question that they don't feel like wasting their time.
