Utada Sensei asked me, "did you have a lot of coffee this morning?" I smiled and said, some, but the yoga is really helping a lot. And it is. My body feels better than it has in a long while, which is kind of funny, since I really stink at yoga. In spite of that, making the effort has produced great results! Less pain during and after training, greater ability to do the movements without undue stress on the body, able to go slow, medium and fast with similar results, better able to take strong ukemi...I don't think I could have found anything better to yield results from something I do formally once a week for an hour. Now I have to really try to start doing what little I have learned for about 15 minutes to half an hour every day, along with basic movements.

Shihonage is the basic techinique this month. Wednesday was great, Saturday even better.

I later discovered that that school's connection to Iwama was somewhat tenuous, and not something to be taken as representative. In spite of the fact that Philadelphia has a wide variety of Aikido styles, Iwama is not well represented in the area. People should keep in mind that I was very new to Aikido then, and view my judgment accordingly. So when I learned I was going to France, and I knew that Europe is a hotbed for Iwama training well connected to both Saito Sr. and his son, I decided that the opportunity was not to be missed.

In my search for a place to train, Nicolas Delalondre and Olivier Ledru on www.aikiweb.com recommended the Asahi dojo. I had read about Guerri Sensei on www.aikidojournal.com, as well. One of the posters there was wondering why she was not more well known. Guerri Sensei mentioned that she had run a public dojo for sometime, but got frustrated with always trying to soli ...More Read More
