The work shop was harder than I expected. Three hours of breathing, and towards the end, I realized even that was not enough. One simple thing to focus on and three hours was not enough. But that gives us a life time to practice. The end of this workshop is just the beginning of something to focus on everyday, and it's something we can focus on anywhere.

It was amazing to see the impact when everyone in the workshop started focusing on Kokyu (Breath). Even the beginners where able to perform the techniques as if they had been doing Aikido for 20 years.

I really got to see the point made in Zen, that there is not past, no future, only the present, the here, the now.

If you weren't able to make the workshop, please ask your fellow students about it. Ask them to give you all the details, to share with you, and put that into every class.

After three hours of talking, I hope I don't have to talk again until next year!
