In General Many paths up the same mountain Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Haydn Foster sensei, i was lucky enough to train on the 'Big 3' course in Lowestoft last year- where he taught.
My thoughts go out to his family,friends and students.

Last week in class, Sensei was talking about 'Ki', this is a subject my past instructors have either given a wide berth to or have taken particular care not to talk about.
Sensei was testing the extension of ki through the Jo, so this is something I will have to work on.
I'm also working on getting to grips with the terminology Sensei uses to describe footwork.
Of all the clubs/associations I've been a member of each have their own way of doing things....there are many paths up the same mountain.

Hi Chris, I too was sad to hear of the loss of Haydn Foster, although I never met him, I am well aware of his sterling reputation and of the very high regard in which he was held by Aikidoka in the UK and beyond. My sympathies to his family. Glad to hear you are well. You are much missed. I hope your car troubles get sorted. Chris, the great thing is that all the roads lead to the same place. Be well you and the family
