In General Lee Crawford at AWR Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I was fortunate to be able to make two days of the Crawford Sensei seminar hosted by my friends from Great Valley Aikido at Aikido of West Reading this past weekend. I trained one Friday night last year with them, and watched the Sunday morning class.

This year my body was cooperating, so I got to spend both Friday night and Saturday on the mat. By the end of the day Saturday, I was definately ready for a break (I haven't been training much recently). The training was good, the partners were varied and good...men, women, experienced, not experienced, big and strong, small...a good cross section of training partners.

I like her seminars, and her focus on the quality of movement. I had an opportunity to test some of the things I've been working on, while learning some new things (her waza has a different quality to it than that which I'm used to). I really like the firm, connected feeling of her students, and it was good to feel them a year after the first experience. I picked up some exercises I'm going to keep working on, especially the slow back roll to prone, then back to standing. A real workout for the core when done correctly.

If she's in town again, I highly recommend stopping by and training.

Best,
Ron
