Re: Tadashi Abe

Tadashi Abe Sensei was also a relative of Yoshimitsu Yamada Sensei, Abe Sensei being a cousin of Yamada Sensei's father..
cf: http://www.aikidojournal.com/article?articleID=83

Abe Sensei passed away in 1984.
Abe Sensei is also known for penning a scathing rejoinder to Koichi Tohei Sensei's resignation letter in 1973.
Yasuo Kobayashi Sensei has some interesting anecdotes about Abe Sensei in his online biography, which can be read here:http://www.kobayashi-dojo.com/englis...4_7/index.html
