I wanted to query something though, is Hiroo Mochizuki the son of Minoru Mochizuki? I thought he was but in your reply you said that Hiroo was a direct student of O'Sensei. I didn't realize that Hiroo trained directly from O'Sensei. I thought his father Minoru had trained him in the art of Aikido?
Phil is actually at the YWF World Stage this week, so, I will answer this question. Hiroo is the oldest son of Minoru. Master Minoru sent Hiroo to O Sensei to train under him just like Minoru did. Hiroo had open (public) and private classes with O Sensei.
