The material in this seminar is based on almost twenty years of holding our Randori and Weapons Intensives. It will cover the core movement patterns in used in multiple attacker practice but will go far beyond that into how the perception works, how to place your attention, the psychology of randori etc. I think that most folks will vastly expand their idea of what goes into randori practice. I'd love to have any of my on-line friends show if they can...

I really, really need to get a job that isn't on weekends.

Oh well, I'm sure it'll be a great time.

Just wanted to say that I have been to two of Ledyard Sensei's randori seminars in Seattle and they are well worth it.

Ledyard Sensei breaks down and imparts a great deal of randori wisdom. I've really enjoyed them, and I've learned a lot. If you're in the area, don't miss this seminar.
