Kanetsuka Minoru Sensei

Can anyone on here please give me any information on what Kanetsuka Sensei was like from the time he was invited by Chiba Sensei in the 1970's.
The information I would more Like than any would be things on the gradings conducted by him and Chiba Sensei (especially the Yudansha gradings), the type of things he would do i.e. numerous Bokken Suburi. Also can someone say the famous underpants story where he taught in his underpants.
Thanks in advance, hopefully there would be a few anecdotes on here about Kanetsuka Sensei.

Re: Kanetsuka Minoru Sensei

Hopefully Sensei will stop doing so much Suwari-waza and seiza with us. Well that's my intention anyway
The reason I am asking is to try and possibly understand why he is doing allot of the things he is doing at his courses. It may not get anywhere but there's no harm in asking. Plus its an extra from hearing it from Sensei Don or Sensei Brian.
Cheers Justin, it was those early Sunday morning sessions down with you. Simon did pretty well in his grading as well.

Re: Kanetsuka Minoru Sensei

I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who know some stories but wouldn't write them down online - try getting one of the Shidoin a drink or two...

What Kanestsuka Sensei does is very special and I think it's a great shame that more material of him isn't available online.
