 He started to practice Muso Shinden Eishin-ryu Iai Heiho at the age of 13 under Umemoto Mitsuo Sensei. In 1997 Umemoto Mitsuo left a will to continue protecting a school to him. He followed the will of the instructor.
 Oishi Shinkage-ryu kenjutsu has been taught by the Oishi family. Mr.Morimoto is the best pupil of Oishi EiichiSensei. So, Oishi Eiichi Sensei granted all the secrets to him.
  Talking about Shibukawa Ichi-ryu jujustu, Morimoto Kunio is the most excellent pupil of Une Shigemi Sensei. And he was initiated into all secrets of the Shibukawa Ich-ryu Jyujyutsu. He was appointed as a legitimate successor by his master, Une Shigemi. Mr. Morimoto also served Une Shigemi Sensei untill his death. The attendance to Une shigemi's funeral service was permitted only him and his pupils.
 In 1995, Mr.Morimot decided to convey the techniques widely and founded Kan ou -Kan.

So, only his pupils can perform the katas of the Muso Shinden Eishin-ryu Iai Heiho and Shibukawa Ichi-ryu jujutsu at the Nippon Budokan and the Meiji Shrine. No other person is recognized as an official successor.
