Sensei Gogen YamaguchiIt was near the end of the interview when we realized it. I asked when his father had passes away, and he gave me the date, May 20, 1989. “Come to think of it, what a coincidence!” said Gosei Yamaguchi. “In Japan they are a day ahead.” The date in San Francisco, where we spoke, was May 19, 1995.
