Re: Great Pics of Hiroshi Kato, 8th Dan

Same here. Kato sensei is a normal person with no airs about him. He goes to lunch with everyone and likes to talk with all and will answer any questions about O Sensei, Aikido, or whatever you want to know. He likes to take a nap after lunch but he will sleep on the tatame. If you are working out, he will give you pointers and show you stuff privately. Once, my son and I took him shopping and I said to him, "Sensei, we are your otomos." He responded, "I don't have any otomos, I only have friends".
Best to you,

"It is the philosophy that gives meaning to the method of training."
