Re: Shirata Rinjiro
I have. I purchased them years ago. It appears as if Shirata Sensei didn't use an interpretor/translator which is actually very cool. Why? Because it didn't stop him from talking, in Japanese, to an almost exclusive non speaking japanese crowd. If anything, his enthusiasm for teaching/training comes across.
It's a very informative seminar, three tape set if I recall. It covers a lot of Shirata Sensei's approach, definetely worth buying (lest people start thinking I get paid for promoting this tape, I'm not).
