Hello Jory,
This is Steve from AKI Pennsylvania. Nice to meet you. Where do you train mostly? Is Numata Sensei still teaching in Yokosuka?

Hope to meet you sometime. I think I will be in Japan in August.

Hi Steve, I train south of Yokosuka with a group that started in Miura. Aoki Sensei and Nishimura Sensei head the class and answering your other question, I train on occasion with Numata Sensei in Yokosuka. Thanks for the introduction and I'll look for you in August!
