Thanks for your words they're right on the money!! As for Jo Adell's post...
It's Eric Zmarzly's dojo in Petaluma not the SSU dojo; although I do regularly train with a guy that does train at SSU as well as with us. SR and Napa are always options concerning Sugawara style; as well as yours (no weapons though right??).
Anyhoo, I'm not so butt-hurt today as I was yesterday and as always will move on and adapt ( or some such junk like that!)
