Thanks Dan. If you can make aikido better by irritating the hell out of some of us sometimes, then so be it. Please don't be surprised when we are rude - we take some of your comments as rude. So be it.

This is what ...I.... try to do to make Aikido better
Go to open discussions and read.
My experience with Dan Harden
-I spent the night from 7:30 -midnight. With a couple of guys to get them started on basics. And put my own guys aside.
Meeting with Dan Harden in Boston
I drove for and hour taught, and took Mark to dinner.

Go yell at him too.
As I said many times.
Aikido....full speed...in the wrong direction.
