A friend of mine recently on April 7th, 2001, at the Cherry Blossom Festival at Shobukan Dojo in Washington DC was the unfortunate target of a sword theft and has put up information on a very detailed webpage (http://www.kokumo.com/aikido/kanetaka.htm) regarding the details of the sword and the theft. It saddens me to think that such a thing occured at an aikido dojo. I encourage everyone to take a look at the website and be on the lookout for Fred's stolen sword. Thanks a bunch!
