Does anyone know if there is a Nito (Niten) Ichi Ryu instructor in the Boston
area?  Thanks in advance.

No, but I would be interested in anyone knowing of an instructor ANYWHERE in
the world in any of the styles which issue from Musashi.  Apparently Musahsi-
ryu existed at the first codification of kendo, but I've not seen much since.

Yamada's work translated and published in  Reinhard Kammer's," Zen and
Confucius in the art of swordsmanship : The Tengu-geijutsu-ron of Chozan
Shissai" lists 4 or 5 descendant schools.

And YES, this is the place for this question.

        As best I know (not that good actually) there are no instructors in
Nito Ryu in the US.  Most of the kenjutsu instructors are Itto-Tenshin Ryu,
mainly since the majority of the instructors are students of Sensei Lovret.
A few others are taught in the US; one I know of is Toyama (sp?) Ryu.
