I actually received this a lot sooner than I thought I would. I only tested a short while ago... it seems.
Anyhow today it is official.
Uiriamu Hakaba Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Nidan MIGI INKASU Ten no ni-sen-roku-hyaku-roku-ju-roku-nen sangatsu nanoka Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iai Heiho Seito Dai Ni-Ju-Ni dai Soke, IKEDA Takashi
Or in English…
William Huckaba Is awarded the rank of Second Grade in the Direct Transmission Eishin school On the 2666th Year, 3rd Month, 7th Day of the first Emperor of Japan Under the Authority of the Direct Transmission Eishin School Iaido Warring Strategy Granted by the True and Proper 22nd Soke, IKEDA Takashi
- note... for some reason I think the orignial kanji used was shigatsu and not sangatsu... either way it was smudged by my own fault.. long story.. odd it only happened to taht one kanji... need to find out the physics behind why only that one smudged.
Also I'd like to find that old kanji for "2".
Also other fun stuff.. my passport has arrived.
