Thanks for the announcement Anthony. Won't be able to travel out for the seminar, but I envy your training opportunity!

Please ask Payet Sensei to visit us out here on the East Coast.

For those not familiar with the man, he served Gozo Shioda as uchideshi longer than any other non-Japanese. Many say that his aikido is reminiscent of Shioda's.

What a great opportunity for anyone able to get to the San Diego/LA area.

I second that...if, in the future, he travels to somewhere in the East or Midwest I'll definitely try to attend. We just had a great seminar with Hitashi Nakano Shihan the other week...its always special to have an instructor come over from Japan. I highly recommend all who can make it take advantage of this rare opportunity. Have a great time!
