This event was top notch. I was only sorry that my battered old knee wasn't able to go the distance each day. A fantastic amount of great information about proper body alignment and power. I have to say, much like doing a Systema workshop, the exercises made me think of Mr T in Rocky when he said "P-A-I-N"...
Ledyard Sensei,

Could you comment on the feel of Akuzawa-sama's technique since you have mentioned your encounter with Mike Sigman (sama)?

Did you find the experiences similar at all, very similar, completely different?

Could you comment as to how their approaches relate (at least from your perspective)? And if you've met Dan Harden (sama), could you add him to the comparisons?

In other words, do you feel like they are really all doing something very related or that they're each doing something really substantially different in approach and/or effect?

Best wishes.
