Thank you, Henry, for your kind consideration.
I watched one of your videos and although I thought you were a bit stiff...I explored the technique in my last few classes. I find it very effective. It allows for realistic technique and for practice of ki extension.
Thank you for putting the video up.
I guess when anyone over seventy is still training the person in question might well lack some synovial fluid in their joints.Knowing Mr Ellis well, I can attest to his longevity in Aikido.He is a fine example of a man who tries to protect the heritage of the art.He does not suffer fools gladly and calls it as he sees it. This is sometimes misconstrued by some.I find Mr Ellis quite refreshing and always
enjoy his contributions to the Forum.
