Noone answered any questions really well IMO. David Andreasen is my name I have no reason to hide. Who told you Hodges? Giamboi? Diaz? He could not have been Ohno he is no longer in the organization. Was it Kohler tracing ISP's again? Troy I trained in Soka Dojo under Ohno Shihan in 2002 I was in Tanemura's home dojo I met John,James Wright and other Shihan. I never claimed to have high rank in the Genbukan or any rank in that matter. So how much could I have learned since starting in the Genbukan in 2002 and leaving it in 2005. Enough to leave it. Hey the guy resurrected a dead Ninja school and made himself the head of it. No matter how you try to reason it or justify it it still stands GUY RESURRECTED A DEAD NINJA SCHOOL FROM A VOICE HE HEARD ON AN AIRPLANE. Thats fine he is a business man but IMO and again this is MO I find mixing Budo with Disney selling is a commerical money scheme. No Mr. Kohler tried to present the Kanji here on this site he does not add up to what he is claiming. You can search the thread. I had my wife who is Japanese check the Kanji and again it is not read that way. Mr. Kohler then tried to change the story as well it is a Chinese way but again in Chinese it does not really mean it and the Japanese do not read it as that. A training group is different then charging students $100 a month in which they are thinking they are learning from a legit teacher. It is a misrepresentation. I am glady to present this on this site since it is an open discussion on Mr. Tanemura Ronin was asking about Tanemura's teachers I presented things for him to look at. Just sharing my experience when I was a Genbukan member and asking questions that were never answered and still not answered.
