Re: Tomiki Style Aikido with Merrit Stevens Sensei

Michael Pabst. He's still teaching down in Ohio, but it's been an age since I last visited. He practices with leg braces and a crutch and is pretty deadly on the mat... loved wrist and finger locks when I practiced with him. Merritt Sensei came up to NH a few times to do seminars with us and we'd go down to do giant seminars with him in Ohio. Giant as in 100 people on the mat in a gymnasium... maybe my memory exaggerates, but I don't think so. He did a lot of work with law enforcement down there and it was a big organization.
