This has turned out to be a very fruitful thread. The original post was about exposure to Bujinkan kenjutsu from the "other" ryuha. At which point I mentioned that I have been lucky enough to see two different instructors teach Gyokko ryu kenjutsu. I would like to note that the two in question come from different Bujinkan lines and the material shared an abundance of characteristics. The patterns they showed were not simple "henka" that they created off the top of their heads. Rather they were based on material learned from their senior Japanese instructors, which were learned in some form from Hatsumi sensei. The material is very complete and encompasses all three levels of the gyokko ryu as well as some kihon. The Gyokko ryu kenjutsu is essentially "ura waza" as it was explained to me. However I do not have any data or resources to "prove" them other than the sets themselves.

I would like to thank everyone that participated in this thread because it has shed light on a number of interesting points. Kenjutsu is really one of the invisible threads that connects everything in the Bujinkan. However it is difficult because most of us don't have the time/regular access to those few people that are knowledgeable in this area.

IMO, from my knowledge, I have not met the student who had the perfect Seigan-no-Kamae of kenjutsu any other than two certain Japanese Kunoichi

Don't try to find them

Muto Dori waza is a combination of Kenjutsu, Battojutsu and Taijutsu.....

Harada San thank you for your statistical analysis, it’s most refreshing to view it from that perspective.
