Re: Terry Dobson's Training History
Great story, Ellis. They were a different breed indeed—authorized to fold, spindle and mutilate.
I asked because a Japanese teacher of mine once had a run-in with Miyamoto in Hombu in the late 1970s during Watanabe's class. M seems to have wanted to put my Japanese teacher in his place. This man was responding to M in kind, though, and the pace escalated until Watanabe had to intervene. It is stories like these that make me realize the truth of Tissier's statement: "In those days, Miyamoto only trained to destroy his partner."
