Re: A New Column: It Had to be Felt

FYI - A note of clarification about Motomichi Anno Sensei's relationship to the Kumano Juku Dojo in Shingu, Japan: He retired as chief instructor in April of this year, just before he turned 82.

Anno Sensei served as the chief instructor for nine years, following Michio Hikitsuchi Sensei, who was the chief instructor for half a century until his passing in 2004.

Anno Sensei still teaches occasionally at the Kumano Juku Dojo. The new "Dojo-Cho" is Tsutomu Sugawa Sensei. The classes are taught by a variety of instructors.

Anno Sensei is coming to Santa Cruz, CA for the Oct. 5-6 Book Release Celebrations. Everyone is invited!
