I was Bruce's first training partner when he came to Iwama in the early 70s. We trained together on numerous occasions over the next few years.
Bruce trained hard and was getting extremely good in Aikido. He had tremendous potential. It's a tragic shame that it will not be realized.
Unfortunately, I can never forgive Bruce for bringing disgrace to our beloved teacher, Morihiro Saito-sensei, and breaking his heart.
Do you have any compassion for his victims? Saito has no responsibility for or should wear no shame for the choices of a grown man.
