As an aside:
Sato Sensei has been teaching Judo and Jujitsu at the US Embassy for over 40 years, speaks good English and enjoys making these international trips.
Nobetsu Sensei enjoys these trips as well. His karate is top-notch, hard and fast and he knows right where to hit someone to make it hurt! He also enjoys, um..."bending an elbow", and enjoys revelry and fun!
The host, Jose Cruz, is a Shotokan karate-ka and a physician. A soft-spoken amiable fellow easy to like!
