Thanks, I'd appreciate any help anyone can give.
David trained in Japan for several years and is a consummate "Nagato"
guy...like me. :) You have my assurances that he is legit and a fine
representation of Taijutsu. He's also a nice guy. :)

Kevin is at least a judan. I haven't seen, nor heard from Kevin in
quite a while; I didn't know he was still training/teaching/whatever.
When I left Japan last year, it'd been a while since I'd seen him in
I've known Kevin for many years, and can attest to his having an impecable
reputation. He is about the only US shihan that seems to truly respected
and welcome by all the various factions in the US. He is one of the few
shihan I have seen that has not become so ensconsed in higher level training
that he has trouble relating to the problems facing a new practitioner.
He was an 11th dan last I had heard, but had pased his dojo in Irvine to one
of his senior students. I'm not sure if he is teaching regular classes, but
he puts on outstanding seminars all over the US and Europe. Well worth
checking him out.
