Hi Jim,

I believe the 8th dan recipients' names are:

* 五十嵐 和男 (Igarashi Kazuo)
* 井森 當博 (Imori Masahiro)
* 杉田 憲司 (Sugita Kenji)
* 川﨑 弘徳 (Kawasaki Hironori)
* 熊谷 研二 (Kumagai Kenji)
* 倉田 勝利 (Kurata Katsutoshi)
* 大沢 勇人 (Osawa Hayato)

If anyone has any corrections, please let me know.

Naturally having something useful to say is like natural responses during training: It takes much practice.
