I read Twigger's book as an example of the "Foreigner-'doing'-Japan-for-a-year-or- two-and-then-writing-a-novel" type. I certainly did not read it for the aikido or for the picture of the dojo he presents, which does not bear much resemblance to the many I have practised in here.

I found Christopher Bates' "The Wave Man" much more satisfying.

Peter, have a good gasshuku and give my best regards to Prof Shishida, should you meet him.

Best regards,
