my sensei allows and encourages me to learn kubudo.but he mostly pays attention to the empty hand aspect of shorinkan shorin-ryu.and the only kubudo i have learned is from nakazato sensei. the lineage goes from him to kyoshi herten to my sensei/brother to myself. i think lineage is the right word!!
