Shibata was the SHIHAN who injured my shoulder in the account at http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21023 .
You and I were there at the same time, I think. I never had any particular run-ins with Shibata, but I never threw him over, either .

The one thing that I appreciated was that he was the only instructor I saw at hombu that bothered to make sure that his instructions were translated into French and English (not all the time, just when there was something specific that he wanted to get across).

Best,

Chris
