Web page for the Non Profit Ogasawara ryu organization.

A recent facebook posting by Oláh Tamás, from Hungary I believe, gave the web page address of the non profit Ogasawara ryu orginization.  There is a nice web page, parts in English(!), for the non-profit with information directly from the ryu.  Who knows, perhaps someday they'll be offering English only seminars in Japan.
