That sweet little thing? I cannot imagine her uttering anything approaching a cross word, or disapproval, or telling you to keep your fat-assed American friends (and the occasional Brit) off her antique chairs lest they break them with their super-sized, hamburger-gobbling, beer-guzzling corpulence ...
P.S. ... of course Mr. NBK knows I read Mr. Maruyama's book, enjoyed it, and learned a lot of history that isn't much discussed in the US yet is critical to a vaguely educated opinion about current events in East Asia. Plus, wow, what an interesting life one of our finest judoka has had!
Mr. Natural, why don't you present a copy ... we can probably get it signed ... to the the granddaughter of Caligula's horse? Would make fine welcome snapshot for your dojo wall.
Oh, East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God's great Judgment Seat;
But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
When two strong men stand face to face, though they come from the ends of the earth!
