Note: YamaMizu Renmei Bujutsu Kai has stood by the philosophy that a "Soke Shodai" (first generation founder) of any martial arts system is a respected title but only truly means something after the initial Soke passes and the ryuha continues to be taught and developed by a Soke Nidai. It is the dedication and loyalties of the followers of the ryuha that bring validity to the title of Soke Shodai. Rev.
