Thank you for your reply Peter.
You are right, I have never heard about him, but I have met and practiced with Inaba shihan at Shiseikan, so it is interesting to learn about his background still.
I am looking forward to subsequent parts of your aikido journey if there are still more to come.
I plan to write ten installments in all, including some extensive discussion of the pros and cons of living and training in Japan.
After which I will write about 'issues', much in the way that George Ledyard does in his columns. Actually, I agree with George on so many issues that it will perhaps be difficult to avoid repeating what he has written. But we will see.
I am afraid that other commitments will prevent an installment for March, but I hope to resume in April.
