    I always liked Osawa-sensi even though I saw him much less than Daigo-sensei and Abe-sensei. I guess he uses the shinai as a walking aid these days - he is afterall 87 years old. Arguably the least well known, certainly overseas, of the three 10 dan holders. A superb technician with a fearsome fighting spirit in his day.

    "Interesting" to see Magnus Cederblad sat on the side in a kohaku obi and that none of the Kodokan instructors were wearing theirs.

    Speaking of belts, perhaps we should just do the SAMBO thing and not have belt colours except to match our jackets.

    Never. And certainly not at the Kodokan.
