Re: Shirata Rinjiro

I unfortunately only had the opportunity to meet and train with Shirata Sensei one time; at the IAF Congress in 1988.

He was an impressive individual both an and off the mat and it was a privilege to meet and interact with him in both situations. As people have said who know better than me he was a true giant of Aikido.
