* Names marked with asterisks have been verified in the eimeiroku of Sokaku Takeda. Other names are as listed in Kiyoshi Watatani's Bugei Ryuha Daijiten on pp. 520-21. Several errors and omissions in this book have been corrected in this listing. The list of names compiled here may not be exhaustive as evidence exists that not all of Sokaku's eimeiroku have survived.
