Haha, he does look good for his age! I'm going to sign up soon.
The 9th dan is a (the) Canadian Judo organization's rank. Not sure what he is in kodokan, but I'll bet no one in the aikido group could keep his feet around Inouye.
Also, his attitude is great and he can relate to the depth of budo history.
No telling who he has met and what he has seen.
What a chance!
Maybe I'll get to meet him someday.
Thanks for pointing him out.
