Frankly, I don't know when I'll be back in Japan next. I was there for a couple of weeks last August (mainly Tokyo and Kyoto) and was unable to hook up with Peter Rehse back then, unfortunately. The last time I was in Hiroshima, I wasn't doing aikido yet...

But, I will say that if you want to have some sort of get together with folks here on AikiWeb, by all means, please feel free to use these Forums as a way to organize such. It looks like there are a number of people in Japan on these boards right now.

Having helped organize four (and in the midst of number five) Aikido-L Seminars (http://www.aikido-l.org/seminars/) in the past as well as having attended the Aiki Expo earlier this year, I can only hope such events that cross over stylistic, organizational, and ideological boundaries happen more and more in the future.

I think these kinds of events, however small or large, can only help the growth and evolution of aikido.

Hafta admit, I totally agree. It was great seeing you at the Aiki Expo and Aiki Extensions.

Until again,
