    Just out of interest, but does anyone know who these guys are?

    I'm guessing they are a branch of the Jinenkan.

    Good question! Came across them a few weeks ago and thought about it too. Amazing what a bit of kanji and some free time can do...

    not sure if jinenkan (but I surely hope not). I mean, having the guts to call their place kukishinden honbu, publishing a book on kukishin by a gaijin under the name of gitetsu nyudo (with no original name attached), calling one of his students(also a gaijin) ryutetsu, no info on their instructors over at their website (only mentions hatsumi as soke); if this is jinenkan then a problem with the kukishinden tenshin hyoho group might occur.

    try contacting mario demol over at fb, seeing this gitetsu nyudo is also in Belgium.

    They're dressing up like the kukishinden tenshin hyoho group, but only referencing Hatsumi

    So maybe a buj person who wanted to go his own, more traditional, way??

    IMO, they're dressed like jinenkan more, with their patterned keikogi and all. they also referenced manaka unsui's shiho giri kata in one of their posts, sadly the vimeo video isn't up anymore. their logo as well, references the old jinenkan logo of clouds and water.

    thanks. highly possible he is ex-jinenkan (as opposed to a current jinenkan member) because:

    1. his name does not appear under the jinenkan Belgium list under de mol, while older lists state him as such.

    2. publishing under a made-up Japanese name (as opposed to your birthname) is pretty much stupid and smacks of commercialism and ashida kim-ism.
