Re: Ashi Sabaki -- Ikeda style names (kanji, etc.)

Hi Martin,

It might be useful to mention that you are talking about Masatomi Ikeda (who used to teach in Switzerland and neighbouring countries), rather than Hiroshi Ikeda - the latter is much more often discussed on this forum, and people here might be confused!

I have happy memories of the several visits Ikeda Sensei made to England a few years ago. I was struck then by the fact that he gave names to more types of tai sabaki than I was aware of, though I wasn't aware that there was a "system".

Alex
