Wikipedia definition
2. Sōke, pronounced, is a Japanese term that means "the head family [house house]. " In the realm of Japanese traditional arts, it is used synonymously with the term iemoto. Thus, it is often used to indicate "headmaster" (or sometimes translated as "head of the family" or even "grand master". ) The English translation of sōke as "grand master" is not a literal translation but it does see use by some Japanese sources.
