Re: "51 years of Aikido: how the art has progress" Terry Pierce (7th Dan Ki Society)

Are you with Utada sensei at the Henry Street? Pierce sensei and Utada sensei are friends, he demonstated at Utada sensei's 25 years anniversary seminar in 1999. If you were there, you should have met my sempais Bill Orwat and Bengt Lindblad.
Yes, Yes, and yes...that is where I had the good fortune to take the warm up ukemi! We were worried that they might not make it, so we let Pierce Sense bounce us around just in case they didn't make it. Oh what fun!

On the "we already do it" topic...i see no real need to go there, as much as I respect Chris (and perhaps agree with him to some extent). I am willing to simply look at each thing for what it offers. If I bring them together, that's up to me.

Ron (hope to at least drop by the seminar, nursing a bad knee (15 CCs of yellow icky fluid out...healing begins from now! KWATZ!!))
