While some sources maintain that the
Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai 
(Usui Reiki HealingMethod Learning Society) was founded by Usui-Sensei himself in 1922, it is generallyaccepted that the Gakkai was actually founded by Rear Admiral Juusaburo Gyuda(Ushida) and other students around 1926/7.It is also said that they posthumously honoured Usui-Sensei by naming him as thefirst
(president / chairman) of the society, Ushida himself being classed as thesecond.Prior to the Japanese entering W.W.II, Hayashi-Sensei had committed suicide, andwith Takata-Sensei returning home once more to Hawaii, all contact betweenJapanese Reiki practitioners and the West was lost.Takata-Sensei was under the impression (or at least,
the impression), that thepractice of Reiki had actually died out in Japan, and that (up to 1976 when she beganinitiating masters) she herself was the only living Reiki Master on the planet.However, as journalist and "Radiance Technique" Reiki practitioner Mieko Mitsui wasto discover on returning to Japan in 1985 to research the origins of Reiki, this was notthe case.Not only was Reiki alive and well, but so, it seemed, was the Usui Reiki RyohoGakkai.[Though it has been suggested that the current Gakkai (if in fact it exists at all) mightactually be a recently 'restablished' society - in much the same way that, in the West,long-defunct esoteric orders have been re-established by those with no directconnection to the originals]The current president of the Gakkai is said to be a Mr. Masayoshi (or Masaki) Kondo.Between Ushida (who held the office from 1926 to his death in 1935) and Kondo(1999 to date) there have apparently been four other presidents:Kanichi Taketomi; Yoshiharu Watanabe; Hoichi Wanami; and Kimiko Koyama.At one time there were supposedly more than 80 branches of the Gakkai, though atpresent there are only 5, with a combined membership in the region of 500 people,only 12 of which are of Shinpiden level.According to Hiroshi Doi [who claims to be a member of the Gakkai] at the Gakkai'sheadquarters in Tokyo, weekly meetings referred to as
shuyo kai 
are held, duringwhich the students chant the

Reiki Ryoho No Shiori 
Members of the Gakkai are given a Reiki manual entitled:
Reiki Ryoho No Shiori 
or:'Guide to Reiki Ryoho'. This is a booklet compiled by two Gakkai presidents: Koyama& Wanami .Amongst other things, the
Reiki Ryoho No Shiori 
covers the history & purpose of theGakkai, and sets out its administrative system. It outlines the characteristics of ReikiRyoho, deals with the how to strengthen Reiki, & includes a number of techniquessuch as: koketsu ho, byosen, nentatsu ho, etc. It also contains comments bymainstream Medical Practitioners, lists 11 of Usui-Sensei's shinpiden students; andinstruction from Mikao Usui.
Reiki Ryoho Hikkei 
Another document, the Reiki Ryoho Hikkei (Reiki Treatment Companion) - a 68 pagemanual - is given to Level 1 (Shoden) Gakkai studentsThe 'Hikkei comprises of an introductory explanation & Reiki Q & A section (-supposedly in Usui Sensei's own words), a healing guide (Ryoho Shishin), &
