Article on Minegishi Sensei in Liverpool

"APPEARANCES are of course deceptive. And to look at the pint-pot sized Mutsuko Minegishi you'd be forgiven for thinking the Japanese Sensei would have the combative prowess of Beatrix Potter's Mrs Tiggywinkle as opposed to that of a martial arts grandmaster.

"But a packed-out Bebington Oval were under no illusions as to the Sixth Dan Sensei's expertise when she led the recent fifth annual EU-Japan Festival of Aikido Martial Art."

I was there, I was there!

It was a really cool seminar, and I have to agree with the major, the kids demo was amazing. They could wipe the mat with me, it wasn't cute at all.

Rather gushing article, I wonder about some of the numbers...

Mrs. Tiggywinkle indeed...
