Yes, there was Sheila, but I don't think she trained much at Ryushinkan. At Tempukan there were people like Margaret and Hepzibah, Dee Chen and her brother Philip, Aidan Smyth, Stuart Broughton and John Ferris. But I remember the earlier time at the Chiswick dojo, where Michael Holloway and the Greeks trained (and a very young Kanetsuka and his future wife Susan). And Bob Lincoln (from Chelmsford, I believe). This was in the early 70s. When I came back from the US, I met Terry Ezra and once went with him to visit Jean Morgan. This period (1975 -1980) was when I think we met for the first time.
