Kenshiro Abbe Sensei 1915 - 1985
A Man With too Many Friends.By Henry Ellis
There are now so many claims by idiots with a desperate need of some form of credibility, they all claim to have been friends of Kenshiro Abbe Sensei.
The genuine direct students of Abbe Sensei will never claim to have been Sensei's friend, they will though, claim with pride to have been a privileged student of this great Legendary Budoka.
There are many comical claims that Sensei loved their mothers cooking so much he would stay at their homes for weeks or months teaching them all the Budo arts.
At its peak the BJC - BAC - BKC had an estimated international membership of some 35,000 members, these idiots claim that Abbe Sensei would take weeks or even months away from his busy international schedule and his demanding duties as head of the BJC to be lured by the irresistible odour of some mothers steak pie with gravy peas and chips.
