Re: Training at Hombu - is it worth it?

Rob - Good point about ukemi and the crowded mat. As for technique vs. power, at this point focusing on technique would be good for me. And as you know there are a number of places to develop inner power.

Mr. Goldsbury, thanks for your response, I was hoping you'd reply. I'm all too aware of Tokyo/Osaka, Kanto/Kansai rivalries, so no worries on that account. You mention other good places to train, besides Honbu. Could you give some examples? I've poured through pages upon pages of dojo websites via Aikikai's dojo search, but I really need some way to pare it all down.

Bryan, thanks for the input. Food for thought. (Chew, chew.)
