The teacher I mentioned was Nobuyoshi Tamura. So I am a bit confused how Maruyama came up.
You tell me Nikkyo and I do Sankyo. Ha, ha.
So I just watched some of Nobuyoshi Tamura and they looked great. I liked his calmness and the change from calmness to action. I felt his movement was very relaxed and fluid yet definite. Technically superb. What more can I say? Except by watching the effect he seemed to have on the Audiences let alone the uke's and his general demeaner he seems like he was also a great man.May he rest in peace.
