I have a certificate signed by Soke Mitose as well as his daughter, and I wear a gold Kosho Ryu Penadant, and can rank up to brown belt in Kosho Ryu.yet my name isn't on their list on their site either.....it doesn't change who I am.
That doesn't mean that someone who isn't on that list isn't recognized as black belts under Soke Mitose. As for Soke's daughter teaching the lessons.....
I can attest that anyone trained by Thomas Mitose's family absolutly knows Kosho Ryu. If Soke Mitose acknowledges their teaching abilities, then that is ok by me.
What with the gold penadant thing.So what I also have one. What does that mean? I know how your recognized? So don't go there. You know what, Where were you in '68 or '69 when he opened his school in Daly City. You have know idea what was being taught during that time. I never questioned his daughter teaching, she's awesome so was her sister Liz.
