So.. I expect a great seminar with emphasis on being soft and moving your body not to mention using atemi with a minimum of power and maximum of impact.... however.. if he starts us out on meditation exercises for levitation and invisibility then I might consider going out for a beer instead.

If what he is doing has any thing to do with Yamaguchi senseis aikido, then I will be more than happy. As example see this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hxvg4...eature=related

Hi JJ,

I don't know if you have seen Takeshi Yamashima, but he is another student of Yamaguchi Sensei and a teacher I can recommend highly. Definitely meets your first expectation (and likes a beer afterwards as well). Also definitely not into the "no-touch" stuff...

He is visiting Europe over the next few weeks - in England on the weekends of 30 June/1 July (Manchester) and 7/8 July (Bath), and he usually teaches in Holland, France and Germany too. It may be worth a Google if you are interested.

PS, that's one of the best films of Yamaguchi Sensei I have seen - thanks for posting...
