  1. Re the patch: Some place I also was informed that the Japanese writing in the center was O’Sensei’s writing of the word “Ki”. I believe Saotome Sensei told me that but i’m not sure of too much these days. Thanks for your good words and keep me on your recipient list.
    Warren Little, who was in DC when the patch was created (1981) and was instrumental in getting the copyright on the patch for Sensei. Warren is also a firm believer in all students wearing the patch on their Gi. There is not the will to make it mandatory but he thinks it is a way of showing our appreciation to Sensei for devoting his life to spreading this art.
