... and a guy by the name of Numata, who I know nothing about but I ran across on YouTube
. Anyone know who he is? I'd love to know more about him.
Hello Hugh - Numata Sensei (7 dan) He's a student of Takeda Yoshinubu Sensei. Numata Sensei also trained with Yamaguchi Sensei. I'm sure Bill Sensei knows him well from Kamakura.
Hope all's well up there!
