2016-09-11 Sun独身の平内が七十九歳の高齢で病没したのは享保十二年(十七二七年)のことで、It was in 1727 (or in Kyoho 12) that the bachelor called Hirauchi died from a disease at an advanced age of 79.
以後は麹町の道場を杉田庄右衛門が引きうけ、名も［辻喜摩太(きまた)］と、あらためたのである。After that, Shoemon Sugita took over the kendo hall in Kojimachi, and changed his name to Kimata Tsuji.
辻喜摩太も、生涯、妻を迎えず、したがって子もなかった。He had not taken a woman for his wife, so he had no children.
そこで、愛(まな)弟子の三沢千代太郎をもって後つぎとなした。Therefore he made his favorite disciple Chiyotaro Misawa his successor.
千代太郎は、名を、［辻平右衛門］と、あらため、道場を引きついだ。Chiyotaro then changed his name to Heiemon Tsuji, and took over the kendo hall.
この、辻平右衛門の門人の中で、［竜虎］だとか［双璧］だとか評判された二人が、秋山小兵衛と鶴岡礼蔵なのである。The two who were called the twin masters among the disciples of Heiemon Tsuji are Kohei Akiyama and Reizo Turuoka.
