Onegaishimasu!
 
Hello,
My name is Devin and I'm an aikiholic.
Greetings to all as I welcome myself to AikiWeb. Addicted for nearly four years now, I train in Santa Cruz, California. North Bay Aikido is a relatively large, primarily Aikikai-style dojo. I also enjoy visiting other dojos of both Aikikai and Iwama styles. I'm hoping to share insights, opinions, advice and anecdotes. Feel free to visit my personal website.
I'm also into photography, and play drums, guitar and musical saw.

See you on the (virtual) mat!

Hi Devin,

Welcome, and thank you for your introduction! I've visited your dojo a number of times and have always enjoyed my visits.

Hi Devin,

There is a great movie that covers three of your interests. It is called Samurai Fiction and is a Japanese chanbara movie. The martial arts are really good and the villian is played by Hotei Tomoyasu who is an awesome rock`n roll/rockabilly guitarist who also did the soundtrack, lots of great guitar playing. Also there is a scene where a character plays Swanee River on the saw!

I saw a little bit of that movie - at the Big Sur Weapons Retreat in September someone put it on after dinner, but I had to go back to my cabin to do some stuff. I'll have to track it down sometime and watch it all.

HEY!!!!! Sounds like you have a fantastic dojo. I'm on the Central Coast, about an hour and some change from San Luis Obispo...and an hour from where I am learing to become part of Aikido. Here's the thing...I, being awake, suffering from a muscle spasm, and curious, did, in fact, check out your website. You are right aobut your links. Quite an eclectic collection; an example of yin and yang; diverse and showing an interesting dichotomy. And, unlike this posting, grammatically correct. . But I am writing to you because I think the Blue Devils rock! I saw them as a kid back in the early 80's because I knew some people involved with the organization. Then, later, I worked for UPS and occasionally went to the Concord building....and whom did I see? The Blue Devils practicing!!!

Thanks Sue, kind of a small world I guess. I was with BD 1978-80, and Drum Corps was the biggest part of my life for about 15 years. I still stay connected, but haven't been actively involved for a while. Aikido has filled that void very nicely. Being with them I suppose also says something about my training ethic.
