Re: John Cornish retires after 52 years of aikido

Dear Mr Cornish,
I hope you have a long, healthy retirement.I am sure I speak for the Martial Arts community when I say you are a pioneer of Aikido /Judo in the U.K. We commend you for your work over the last 50plus years.You have earned the respect of the British Aikido community.
May I also state that we have a common link?I am fortunate to be an old friend of Mr Bob Thomas 7th Dan Judo.He speaks highly of you.I am not sure if we have met in the past , however it would be a privilege and a pleasure if we did meet sometime in the future.
Very warmest regards, Joe Curran.
