Are you suggesting that he is changing his MJER based on his own whims or his karate? I know little to nothing about the gentlemen.
Iaido - Breaking down bad habits, and building new ones.

He is changing all the styles he is teaching. The Shorinji Ryu karate headquarters in Japan don't even want anything to do with him anymore, according to rumour. He also quit the finnish iaido assiocation because he didn't get to be the biggest boss.

All that set aside though - He still is very much an expert and I respect him tremendously. Propably one of the most skilled practitioners in finland in any or all of the arts he teaches.

On a second thought, it might be that he is teaching both MJER and Taura Muso Ryu which is what he calls his version of it. Or it might be that he was forced to change the name because he changed so much techniques. I really don't know for sure, it's pretty confusing as I'm not that knowledgeable on his dealings with the senseis in japan.
