Ikigai interviews William Dometrich, Chito Ryu 9th Dan

I love a good story with plenty of training history, particularly those of gaijin training over in Japan. Matt over at Ikigai posted up an interview with William Dometrich, Chito Ryu 9th Dan, about 2 weeks back, and it’s definitely worth a read, covering (amongst other things) his start in Japan, kata and his experiences training in the US martial arts community over the years. Props to Matt for taking the time to interview Dometrich-sensei and sharing it with all and sundry. The interview can be found here.

  1. thanks for the mention Sean! Credit goes to Dometrich Sensei for sitting down with me when he didn’t know me from adam.

  2. No probs Matt, sorry it was a bit of a belated trackback though, I originally read it shortly after you posted but hadn’t made the time to reference it from my blog. I think it’s really important to record and preserve that kind of info, especially when you consider how much the landscape has changed amongst Western practitioners of foreign martial arts over the last 30+ years.
