Dare I upset the apple cart and mention at this point that in most Yoshinkan schools, the master you'd probably hear about is Gozo Shioda (or Kancho Sensei as a lot of Yoshinkan people tend to call him), and not O'Sensei ?
Stuart...upseeting apple carts is bad for the digestion
I was also wondering where it was written/commanded/suggested (and it might be..I just haven't seen it) by Ueshiba M. that hakama be worn in the dojo. I believe that Kancho Sensei had the highest respect for his instructor and would be surprised to find he had changed that, especially since he had ties to the Ueshiba family and Aikikai until the end of this life.
Just a thought...more apples rolling <wry grin>
