Re: Great Pics of Hiroshi Kato, 8th Dan
It looks like they are having a great time. I was tempted to buy a plane ticket and get over there asap. Kato sensei has some interesting throws like the ones where he throws you straight up but they are based on a real committed attack on the part of uke. I am always working on the "fear factor" when I am his uke but its exciting and I've never been injured. He has had confidence in recent seminars to throw me hard on iriminage. All I remember is the feeling of his hand on my neck "helping" me go forward and then having a flash of seeing my feet in the dojo lights!
