Re: Dan, Mike, and Aikido
I did Tai Chi before aikido and am familiar with a lot of what has been described by Mike Sigman. I also cross train regularly so I'm not particularly inclined to think I'm misconstruing their words.
As to the rudeness issue I agree with you totally as I've had similar experiences meeting people in the real world who I've first encountered online.
That's excellent! Have any of these folks posted reports of what they've felt from you? Would love to read them as well. Maybe you'll do what others have done and have folks come visit to get a hands on sense of what's been discussed.
