I remember Patty Sensei, Pee Wee and John from the first camps many years ago, and may have met Kevin, but for sure he is in the first book! Baker Sensei said good things about Dennis, too, and George was one of the original students at the D.C. dojo. Many years have gone by, I am sure they are even more awesome, and dedicated to training. My husband and I haven't traveled to events in many many years, but I recommend all who are able to try to attend this long standing and special event. Best regards to all, and thanks for many great memories of training and the great hospitality. I remember John one winter hosted the camp at the school where he was working. Was that were there were grapefruits lying around under the trees? And practice on the beach during one of the other camps... What nostalgia! Keep training all you who are able! We are so fortunate to have been introduced to Aikido:)
