Michael is a good friend of mine. You could also say that in the nebulous organization of Shodokan Honbu its his wing that I was under during my Mudansha days (still am). There are sempai, Sempai, and SEMPAI. I can explain that more if your interested.
Michael is an instructor at Shodokan Honbu - this goes beyond just rank. What it means is he not only knows technique but knows the way Nariyama wants it taught. More important for you guys he gives a very good class. Good, enjoyable Budo.
I know I don't have to ask but treat him well, watch closely and listen carefully.

We're particularly fortunate this year to have Michael MacCavish coming over from Honbu as a visiting instructor. I'm looking forward to a little hard work, a lot of fun and possibly a nice steep learning curve!
