    I don't own one, but I teach at my friend Chris's school on the Cape. I also have the occasional private student, and teach some tai chi for the next town over (adult education).

    Where might we have met?

I don't feel he represents accurately what Mitose taught. To be honest, I would rate his skills as higher than Mitose, and just wish he would just say, 'this is my interpretation of what kenpo should be.'

    Thomas Barros Mitose is a Kajukenbo guy who met his father later in life. He has about as much claim on Kosho Ryu as Bruce Juchnik.

    I would agree with your assesment. I have trained with Hanshi on several occasions. He is a very good martial artist and I believe that he has taken Mitose's teachings to a new level with his interpretation, which I believe is what, from what I heard, is how Mitose would have wanted it.

    I would disagree with you on one point. Unless Thomas Mitose has been doing things to promote his father's system or doing things for the martial arts outside his own little world, that I have not heard of, I feel Hanshi has full rights to the system. He has spent countless hours doing seminars and spreading the teachings (or his interpretation of them) of Mitose. Thank you for the insight.

    Yes, based on effort, I suppose I would go with Juchnik, but I feel that neither has but a tenuous claim on 'pure kosho ryu', not for lack of efforts, but due to the fact I feel that James Mitose's Kosho Ryu barely exists - it's almost like Historical Fiction.

    Matt, Omega was the guy that ran in around in a purple gi and tried to hide his boner when he asked a couple of students to grapple :D

    Necro alert! I wrote that Chow didn't do formal kata. I stand corrected. Here on John Bishop's page is a video from the sixties: http://www.kajukenboinfo.com/professor_chow.aspx
