Speedy,
There are definitely other Yagyu Shinkgage Ryu schools besides the one in Ohio. My understanding is that there are multiple lines of Yagyu Shinkage Ryu. Meik Skoss leaps to mind http://www.koryu.com/bio.html#mskoss I'm afraid that I do not know of a Yagyu Shinkage Ryu dojo in Southern California. That doesn't mean there isn't one. You might want to try your search again in this forum http://www.e-budo.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=16 I know there are some folks from Southern California that hang out there. I'm sure they could point you in the right direction. I suspect most are at the West Coast Taikai right now though.

You might want to checkotut he West Coast Taikai that's going on this weekend near Disneyland. It would be a great chance to checkout a lot of the local budo scene. http://www.westcoasttaikai.com/

BTW, Uchi Dechi, you might be interested to know that there is a thread going at E-budo regarding that dojo. Perhaps you would like to chime in. http://www.e-budo.com/forum/showthread.php?t=37774&highlight=John+Viol

Talk to your sensei, he doesn't teach Yagyu Shinkage Ryu, he teaches Yagyu Shingan ryu. These are different arts, you shouldn't confuse them.

Splice, even that doesn't seem to be right. He seems to lay claim to a Menkyo Kaiden, but as of yet the E-budo thread hasn't turned up a reference to exactly which style that was awarded by. His site definitely reads a bit... odd.

I understand that the web site is a bit odd, but if you're really bull-headed like I am, you can track the links.

this page states that the dojo is a representative of "YAGYU SHINGAN RYU HYOHO IAI JUTSU". It also shows a scroll reading "Yagyu Shingan Ryu Hyoho Iai Jutsu", painted by Ishihara Masao, "one of Viol Shihan's Instructors".

If you look at the photo captioned "John M. Viol Shihan receives Menkyo Kaiden in Japan - 1991" on this page and then look at the gallery of John Viol's instructors, you can see that the person in the photo for the menkyo kaiden is also in other pictures and identified as Ishihara Masao.

Considering the other pictures and statements lead us to believe he also studied Toyama Ryu under Nakamura Taizaburo, his claims to teaching a sogobujutsu seem to relate to Yagyu Shingan Ryu, at least to me. It may be a confusing web site, but I'm still pretty sure that it does in fact list his styles and teachers, you just have to wade through some weird things to get to them.

Thanks for doing the leg work splice. I couldn't find anything consistent. The website is definitely peculiar. Perhaps it really is just an example of lousy web site content.

To paraphrase Bones on Star Trek,"I'm a doctor, Jim, not a _____."
The man in question might well be a genuine martial arts but not be a website author or builder.

I've had enough, uchi_deshi. The web page is confusing enough I don't need you to throw random statements on top of the pile when you don't seem to know what's going on.

From the web page I found statements about the arts he supposedly learned, and I'm not part of them. The people who are can do what they like with that, or more likely nothing at all and continue their practice as usual. I've got no dog in this race, and you can find your path on your own.
