Kaizen is indeed a really good teacher with a practical, down-to-earth approach. I hope the seminar goes well.

If you are in the area( or not) Don't miss Kaizen's Seminar. IT will totally change your view on ukemi, softness, and for goodness sakes....dont ask him if he can hit you upside sown and out of balance. I did that in december and it still hurts.

Best of luck for a great seminar, but you don't need it.
