Re: It Had to Be Felt #24: Chiba Kazuo: "There We Were, Two Handsome Young Men"

Jamie - no I won't. I'm looking for more first hand accounts. Even if I quoted someone accurately AND they were accurate in their report, it'd be gossip. And as soon as we that starts, the entire purpose of the columns would be defeated.

To be sure, if someone "formally" interviews someone who had first hand experience, that is welcome. As I posted before, I very much hope that people are able to interview folks who actually took ukemi for Ueshiba Morihei - or one of the Daito-ryu luminaries - or senior aikido teachers - with the fine-grained questions that would actually contribute to the project.
