Well, just to give us some understanding of where you're actually rooted, could you tell us your teacher's name and who he ws with before he taught you?
Otherwise, an interesting approach you describe.
Hi, thought I had, Noro, Tohei. His name is Mike Muspratt. Not much written about him on the net though. I managed to find one reference to him in one teachers book and one picture of him at Tohei summer camp 1976 I think, 70s anyway.
