I spoke with Terry last night after class. Have Keith give Don a call.
Shane, it was nice meeting you.
Keith is a great guy and you are lucky to have him for a teacher.
If you can get to UConn - which is a lot closer to you - one of my students (Brian) is teaching aikido there on a rotation. Brian has a good handle on the solo and paired practices we learned from Dan.
The advice you got above about concentrating on how to do the solo work is very good advice - so is the advice about contacting your teacher.
