In the past, some Soke were omitted from the lineage, like in Gyokko ryu, for example. Does anyone know of the reason for these omitted Soke? Did they do something wrong? And- How was the lineage continued if some Soke were not able to transmit it? Thanks!

Who do you think was omitted? What evidence do you have they were omitted?

Soke has stated in some of his books that some Soke were omitted becuase they were not sufficient to be Soke, or that a proper successor did not emerge. ( In Soke's book-Ninpo, wisdom for life, for example). Also, looking at the lineage of Gyokko ryu, it seemed that some Soke were not noted. The way it "seemed" was becuase they weren't worth mentioning, not because they were killed in battle or something like that. I'm wondering if this is the case, or.....? I'm just asking others for their thoughts, opinions and/or Knowledge on this. Thanks!

Sounds like you answered your own question. I doubt anyone else has more specific info.

When a list of Soke state "omitted" or "several generations missing" I have always thought it to be because there was a lack of knowledge from the author of the scroll on who those persons were.
