At my karate club people call me Sensei, and my friends just call me Richard.
Meeting of the minds 空手トークトークトーク！
Today I had a mind-meld with Shiramizu's Arakawa Sensei over lunch at a Turkish restaurant in Ikebukuro. Lots and lots of 'karate shop talk'. Sensei's positive enthusiasm is infectious. And we somehow always come up with many karate project ideas. Big ideas... ah, but good things come to those who wait so stay tuned...
