Hello, everyone. I finally managed to get around to registering to post on Jun's AikiWeb forums, though I've been reading for a while. I've a dojo in Pearland, TX (southern suburb of Houston), with tongue-in-cheek name of Wasabi Dojo. We're Tomiki in style, with more than a smattering of judo in there. We share space with a BJJ academy, so there's that sporting influence on some of my people, too. I came up in the Tomiki/Kogure/Geis line here in Houston, under Ray Williams, if that rings anything for anyone.
Look forward to discussing things with you all.
Welcome to AikiWeb and thank you for your introduction. I like the name of your dojo.
Thank you, Jun. As stated, the name is tongue-in-cheek and came about almost by accident. Well, if you consider post class beer drinking a few years back to be "accidental"

I also like your tagline - but the devil's advocate in me has to ask, eyes twinkling, if kuzushi wouldn't be better illustrated as the house sliding out from under the mountain :-)
Janet, I didn't create the Kanji.... so .... and ... but... I sort of agree with you.
An "old dude" in the most respectful sense of the phrase told me that, and I had to go and look for myself. Sure enough, mountain on the house. Makes sense, in the old guys in armor sense. Anymore, I think we'd need the old Space Ghost character to really capture our mental pic, eh?
Ha! Good to e-meet you.
