[...]I still have a lot of respect for Ikeda. I hope that he's progressing rapidly in his training. He was very subtle and soft when I got, ah, about 5 to 10 seconds hands on time with him.

I'm looking forward to catching him at another seminar sometime in the upcoming year or two and getting just a bit more hands on time.
Ikeda-sensei will be at Aikido Shobukan Dojo in Washington, DC, Thursday evening, February 5, 2009 - Sunday morning, February 8. Generally, about 60 to 75 people attend this seminar, and there are many opportunities for direct hands-on interaction with Ikeda-sensei. Also, you can stay in the dojo to reduce costs. There is more information at

See you on the mat!
