talked to Ikeda sensei last year and he mentioned about the UK. he said he has not been in UK and looked forward to it. so you guys better take good care of him and have him back here nice and good afterward. otherwise, we would have to cross the pond and challenged you blokes to a drinking duel. it will be ugly and brutal, since we only bring ugly brutes with us.
you can bring the biggest ugliest brutes you like, but all we would need to do, is fill them up with a few pints of Theakston's "Old Peculiar" or a pint or three of "Old Speckled Hen" and they would be like gibbering babies, unable to knock their way out of a wet paper bag!!
Don't worry, I'm sure we will be very well behaved and hand him back to you unharmed
