Dear Henry and Joe, it is great to hear from you too. Best wishes for the year to come and I hope some more cooperation and articles between us
With the passing of Tamura Sensei and Sugano Sensei, I believe it is all the more important to try to recall and salvage all that we can from the old days.
I am too very interested in the conversation currently taking place on this thread since I have been a member of both Tamura and Nocquet senseis' federations and I have heard a lot of conflictual accounts regarding that period. I never quite figured out why so many Japanese sensei were sent to France by the Aikikai at that time...
All the best
