MASAMITSU TEI-JI (t: KANEMITSU): From EN-BUN 1356 to the O-EI, and his style follows according to time. Some say O-EI MASAMITSU is the second generation. There are two
style periods. Early work will appear KATAOCHI "Stooped-
shoulders" in early, pre-SODEN KANEMITSU(1) style.
Later he heads his own school where KOZORI style marks
the date. Does it look like early KANEMITSU style from
within an enhanced envirnment? Or is it KOZORI in style?
