The source for what I practice is from the last elements:

- the Nampo Roku,

- the Rikyu Densho,

- the 100 lines of Rikyu, and

- the 300 poems of Jo'o.

Some of these elements are preserved in some of the Daimyo Cha systems, but most have been altered in the intervening centuries to conform with the San Senke, including Sado Nampo Ryu (and Nampo Kai).

I practice as close to the mid-1500's methods as it is possible to reconstruct.
