Re: Biography of Christian Tissier Shihan, 7th Dan Aikikai

Hi Guillaume

In this bio there is a reference to some `rivalry between Nakazono Sensei and Noro Sensei`

In 1963 I was one of the ukes to both Nakazono Sensei and Noro Sensei at the Kenshiro Abbe BJC National Championships held at `The Royal Albert Hall London` - I remember Nakazono used Noro as uke in a demonstration against knife attacks - Nakazono took Noro down in immobilisation, as he took the knife from Noro he pretended to stab Noro to complete the demo. I saw nothing wrong personally, but Noro was furious at the actions of Nakazono Sensei and he did not try to hide it.

Do you know anymore on this rivalry ?
