Church Jr., named Harold Martin as 2nd Generation "Kaicho-Dai" (President Elect) of the Nippon Kobudo Rengokai and head-master over the Shorinji Tetsu Kempo and Nippon Kamishin Ryu, April 26th, 1977. Church sensei originally named Harold Martin as "Soke-Dai" (Head-Family Elect) of Shorinji Tetsu-Kempo and Nippon Kamishin Ryu in 1969, after returning from Japan. See Kai document page to see rebuttal of "suspect" documents.
