    The reference to Daito ryu Takumakai is, in fact, correct. It refers to the practitioners and not the material. A quick Google search reveals this.

      I think it’s confusing because someone seeing the video would think that these techniques and the book “Budo Renshu” were from the Takumakai which did not yet exist in 1934. In any event, it can be easily clarified.
