Mr Erard,
Have you seen Chiba Kazuo Shihan in action or taken ukemi for him? I was at the Combat Games and saw Miyamoto Shihan's demonstration. Afterwards he told me that the demonstrations of K Chiba were a kind of model.
Best wishes,
Pr Goldsbury,
No I have not had that chance, my only trip to San Diego coincided with that of Chiba Sensei in Britain for a summer seminar unfortunately. Miyamoto Sensei does indeed quite regularly refer to Chiba Sensei. Some very skilled students of the later also tend to be close to Miyamoto Sensei when the visit or stay in Japan. I do not know much more than that though, for I have never been a student of Chiba Sensei, nor have I been a member of the Birankai (my loss).
