There are some spaces available. It's less than a month away. This is a good workshop to understand and develop the basics of internal strength that is used in many Asian martial arts.

If you want to know and feel what "jin" and "suit" is that is being talked about in these forums, it's an excellent workshop to attend. At the end of the seminar, you might even look at your Aikido training differently and gather new insights into your Aikido practice.

I thought this was the best seminar I've attended. I picked up some training tips that will increase my power output, and I got a clearer idea of what the "suit" is (and it is definitely not how some other people are using the term.)

Mike was in a generous mood this weekend and demonstrated quite a few power releases that shook the foundation of the building. I was at the other end of the building and could still feel the vibrations. I have not seen that at other peoples' seminar. To be fair, I asked Mike if I can replicate a hip push demo from a seminar I attended in Santa Ana. The result was conclusive for me- Mike took my balance and decisively bounced me backward. There was no resort to techniques like a leg sweep or discussion about my lower center of gravity (I'm short). This satisfied my curiosity about the lower center of gravity issue that various people have brought up as a natural advantage for short people.

I have to admit Mark Murray is right -- not everyone's "aiki" is the same.

Thanks,
Tin
