Thanks, Henry. And obviously, from your account, he must have learned some kendo or other sword somewhere!

That picture of Abbe and his sister (her name should be Toyoko, not Izumi) was taken only a few years before I met Abe Toyoko sensei. If I'd only known of the familial connection!

I too wondered about the name change in the press ? I am very interested to learn more of your meeting with Abbe Toyoko, when was that ??

So, we are not only connected by name, but also through Abbe Sensei's family, we could be distant cousins <]:-)
