Hey, Dan, I'm a budo vagrant. I'll hit any seminar I can as long as I can get a hall pass from the wife and permission from the doctor.
Even sometimes when I can't... I wish someone would get Howard Popkin out here too. I would love to see things through his lenses for a while. Heck, I had a blast with Aaron Clark and his students up at the Aikiweb seminar a few years back.
For now they've lined up a new MRI for my back. They're wondering if I did more damage than they thought when I fractured the tailbone... Still having pain from that damned thing almost 9 months later.
