The latest "It Had to Be Felt" essay is now available for your reading pleasure, this time on Ishoyama Toshihiro of the Iwama dojo. This essay was written by Carl Thompson. From the essay: "My first impression of him was that he was far too powerful for his size. He was reasonably well built, but there was a clear disparity between his frame, and the strength coming out of it. He would grab me so strongly that I couldn't budge, and in the beginning, I wondered if he was being a bit mean. I noticed his wrists had thick cuffs of hair. He said it was from being grabbed so hard for so many years, and joked that he wished he'd had people grabbing his hairline too."
