Re: Moriteru Ueshiba v Christian Tissier

In 03 a group of us Canucks went to Aikikai Hombu Dojo with Kawahara sensei as our "tour guide". Day 1 in Tokyo we attended Doshu Moriteru Ueshiba's morning class, and that evening the 15 of us went to dinner with him. We were fortunate that one of the group could act as a translator. Mr. Ueshiba told us that when he teaches he likes to demonstrate the basics. As it was nearly a decade ago I forget what else he said beyond that, but he wanted to make sure that people attending his sessions received consistent instruction.
