I will not respond specifically to Ms. Parks comments. I do not think it appropriate to turn this public forum into a personal debate.
Suffice it to say that I believe all of Toyoda Sensei's students must train in the way they feel they can best honor their Sensei. No amount of vitriol or misinformation will alter the basic question we all must ask: How do we train with an earnest heart, in the face of the loss of a man who was Teacher and everything that connotes?
Everything else, in my view, is wasted effort. Gambatte,and peace,
