In memory of OKUDEN SHIHAN JUNICHI MATSUSHITA
I met Matsushita sensei in 1991 in Vienna.
He was present as an accompanying teacher SOKE.
The first day of the course, I injured myself, following a fall.
He took care of me every day with great attention.
I saw him again in Belgium
Each trip to Japan he was there to treat us and massage us
But the best gift he gave me was his KATANA
A razor-sharp EDO Era KATANA
When he sold it to me he had tears in his eyes
Due to my illness, I can no longer play sports, he tells me.
Every time I cut I think of him during the MOKSO.
From now on I will think about it more strongly
He was a real samurai...
Goodbye My friend
