Shihans: I think it was Arai shihan I'm remembering from the conference. Little old frail looking man with white hair and no more than 5 feet, throwing men far bigger and stronger than him.

There were so many others that were memorable: Shihan Kobayashi I think was the one who executed 450 degree turns. Lots of variations on turns. Great sense of balance. I thought it was also very effective for shorter people. He himself is no more than 5 feet. His son is much taller and acts as his uke a lot of the time.

Since I'm short I'm also taking note of all these technqiues which work well for little people .
