In General Tamura Sensei Seminar Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I continue to be amazed by little Japanese senseis like Tamura Sensei who can so lightly an easily throw guys easily twice their size around the dojo. Attending his lessons and those of Fukakusa Sensei, who accompanied him down to Singapore, was certainly inspirational. It's a big reason why I took up aikido, that I could possibly do this well into my older age.

He showed us a few nifty moves which naturally looked dead easy when he demo-ed them but when I tried to replicate them, I struggled for a long time before I figured out where my hands were even supposed to be.

The fun bit was the final dinner, where Tamura Sensei even graced us with a song, after a few drinks no doubt, ...and he does have a remarkably good voice. Then we had an NZ member of our dojo, a schoolteacher, come up and sing us a maori kids song...she said later she sang in maori so that no one would know if she was singing the wrong words . And she sang really well too...I can so see her being dragged up every event thereafter to be the evening's entertainment as she certainly had presence as well. I'm sure the kids in her school love her.
