Hey Rob, no I won't be able to make it out this year. I'll be keeping an eye out however in the future. He definitely seems like someone who is worth making the effort to see first hand.
Too bad...I'll catch ya next time in Seattle when Akuzawa is in town and I'm feeling masochistic for more "tenchijin"
" I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?"
So, when do I learn the real Roppokai okuden; like "Aiki-StuffaGuyintheTrunk".....or do we have a whole scroll of Head-in-a-Vice-Waza??
