Re: Ken Cottier

I last saw Cottier Shihan at the Kenshiro Abbe Memorial event in 2005..I reminded him of when we first met around 1960 when he was a Judoka and a beginner in Aikido, I was teaching Aikido with Ken Williams the first student of Aikido in the UK at Fred Wainwrights Dojo in Liverpool. The one thing I remember about Ken was his abilty to immitate almost anyone, in particular Kenshiro Abbe to perfection... He was a very funny guy and a great ambassador for Aikido.
