Re: Shioda Gozo Technique

People might not agree but looking at Shioda is like looking at O Sensei. Small size, same "jumping" style and a smoothness that is amazing.
Moreover Shioda's randori in mu humble opinion are the best you can see. I have seldom seen Uke attacking with such a reality without waiting for their turn and yet Sensei shows no indecision or trouble of any sort.
No disrespect for my Sensei who is excellent as well as his Sensei (Saotome Sensei), but I wish I could have trained a little under Shioda Gozo Sensei...
