Ledyard Sensei and his students
 
Hello,

I had the pleasure of going to Ledyard Sensei's dojo this weekend and I can't express in words how nice a time I had.

Ledyard Sensei and his students were warm, welcoming, and hard-working.

It was truly an honor to go there and I look forward going again sometime soon.

If anyone in the Aikido community is looking for a qualified Aikido instructor, you can not go wrong with Ledyard Sensei.

Thanks again for such a nice weekend.

I've always heard good things about Ledyard sensei. I'm hoping that one day, I can either visit his dojo or attend one of his seminars.

Of course, that also goes for you, Mr. Popkin. :)

Thank you,
Mark

Let me say that this past weekend's seminar with Howard Popkin Sensei was absolutely one of the best weekend's of training I have ever had. I can't remeber when my students were this enthusiastic about a seminar we've had (and we've had some great ones).The Daito Ryu techniques as taught by Okamoto Sensei, Howard's teacher, are completely compatible with what my own Aikido teachers are doing and what I, myself, have been working on.

Popkin Sensei's ability to clearly explain and his talent at sequencing a set of lessons into a coherent whole is top rate. If you want your Aikido to operate using sophisticated "aiki" principles rather than just powerful technique, then don't miss a chance to train with Popkin Sensei, or of course, his teacher, Okamoto Sensei.
