The latest in the series of articles by Paul Rest, "Linda Holiday - A Martial Artist Making a Difference" provides us with a look into Holiday sensei's thoughts to the question, "If you could have tea with O Sensei, what question or questions would you ask him?"
From the article: "If I had the opportunity to be with Osensei, the first thing I would hope to do is to feel his presence. The teachers who studied directly under Osensei all received something special, and they describe Osensei's presence as 'indescribable'. They also indicate it was Osensei's vivid presence that made possible those mysterious, powerful Aikido techniques said to be 'filled with love'. So I would hope to bring myself fully to the experience of being with Osensei and allow myself to be affected by it on a non-verbal level."
