Re: YouTube: Shigeho Tanaka (9th dan)

I saw this film nearly 30 years ago - I don't know how he got hold of it, but Kanetsuka Sensei brought it over to show my father and me, as he liked Tanaka Sensei's aikido very much. I think he knew Tanaka at the Yoshinkan in the early 1950s.

I enjoyed it too - very dynamic and direct, but good contact. Lots of echoes of Gozo Shioda, too.
