Re: Your "big break" in Aikido

Can you tell us more about what training with Tomiki Shihan was like? For example: What did he emphasize? How did he teach? Did he use a distinct pedagogical structure? If you took ukemi for him how did that feel?
Mr Van Treese,

Please start an AikiBlog, so all may benefit from your experience and knowledge of being a direct student of Professor Tomiki.

I would greatly appreciate reading about your training, and the personality of Professor Tomiki.

Please tell us about Ohba sensei and his relationship with Professor Tomiki in the formulation of Shodokan. I am anxious to hear the details.

Many thanks, in advance , Sir!

Train well,

Mickey
