Re: Who brought the Saito a.k.a. Iwama lineage to Europe?

From the site, Lars Anderson sensei (Sweden) has already connected in 1972 and the first seminar was held in Sweden in the mid-70s.
Lars-Göran Andersson is/was a student of Tomita sensei, who as already mentioned came here in 1969. Of course the saitosensei.com website doesn't mention Tomita.

Btw, on which page of that website do you find the text on Andersson? You can probably right click and find the direct url, or just tell which way I go to find it.

Also, Göteborgs Aikidoklubb claims to be the oldest Iwama style dojo outside of Japan.

Created in 1969, yeah. Guess who taught there?
