Re: Small World

Hi Peter,

Hope things are going well for you. Frank Hatashita was my teacher for almost two years in Toronto. I can relate to your experience as you describe... I've had a few times like that myself over the years. In fact, my life has been filled with similar times that I recall fondly. Ernie Cates Sensei was in my dojo for a few days not long ago and we had lots of similar memories. At 72 and two artificial knees, he is still great to tussle with. I also, could do with lots more times like that. Such memories are the real "trophies" that don't need to be dusted...

Take care,

Chuck Clark
