…pencil learning vs.electronic…

Amusing to note, as we process the recent findings of Princeton and UCLA researchers,  that:

  • Masatake Fujita sound-recorded O’Sensei’s talks, and Sadateru Arikawa transcribed them for the Aikikai’s  newsletter…. AND, NOTORIOUSLY, AT HOMBU, NOT A SINGLE STUDENT UNDERSTOOD WHAT O’SENSEI WAS SAYING…

while on the other hand:

  • a young Mitsugi Saotome was told by O’Sensei to write down everything he said …AND SAOTOME SHIHAN WENT ON TO PUBLISH THREE EXTREMELY LUCID BOOKS, IN WHICH HE EXPLAINS PRECISELY WHAT O’SENSEI WAS SAYING…
