Coming up to 50 years in Budo I have met many good
people. Some of these people I have admired not only as a person, but also
as a martial artist.
particular people there are some very special to me, so much so that I
feel that it is time to show my thanks by awarding the first ever Menkyo
certificates of Chudan level of Myo Shin Ryu Jujitsu.
new Ryu & Style was awared to me in 2002 by Dai Nippon Butoku Kai
Kyoto. the first time in 50 years; the first time ever to a none japanese.
I have made out only 7 Menkyo Certificates each one is numbered.
you to my dear friends. I hope you will accept this award in the spirit of
Budo as a gift to your from to to a good & kind person as well as an
exceptional Budo man.
