Re: YouTube: Noro sensei's jo kata

Thank you very much for posting this rare video which I have now added to my own video channel " Aikido Ellis Video Channel " ... where I have many old films of Kenshiro Abbe Sensei ~ Masahilo Nakazono Sensei ~ Tadashi Abe Sensei and more.
Noro Sensei first came to the UK in 1961 ~ 2 ...where he taught at the famous birth place of British Aikido the ` Hut Dojo `. I had the pleasure of being on stage with him and Nakazono Sensei at the Royal Albert Hall London in 1963 when Kenshiro Abbe Sensei held the British Judo Council's ( BJC ) national championships to a packed house.
Noro Sensei was the first Aikido teacher we had ever seen wearing all white gi/hakama, you can see why we gave him the name " The White Tornado "..
Thanks again
Henry Ellis
