Not to mention the group of people who will claim that Hatsumi gave them a scroll in 1 of the 9 ryu-ha so you will have Kukishinden-ryu school, togakure-ryu schools, etc. I expecting dozens at the very least.

    You will then have the ones that claim to be "alive" and the ones that claim to be "traditional" as well as the ones who have others styles under their belts (I know ones with judo, with kick boxing etc) who may even suddenly mix it up now that they are free to do what they want...its going to be an interesting time.
    Who knows...

    According to a book I have by Donn Draeger Hatsumi was born in 1931 in Chiba Prefecture
    That would make him about 76
