Re: July 13th - 16th 4-Day Daito Ryu Intensive with Howard Popkin and Joe Brogna

I needed some time to really process how great this weekend was. Thanks to George Ledyard for coming up with the idea of the Annual West Coast intensive. Thanks to Josh Drachman and Gina Drachman for being such great hosts, and to Arrow Pride, Jeff, and Tro Ota for making this such a successful seminar. There are too many names to list, but we greatly appreciate all of the hard work, open mindedness, lack of ego that was exhibited by all of the practitioners.

I have to give a very special thanks to two people. First, Howard Popkin. It is an honor, a pleasure and of course always a fun time when we share the mat together. I always appreciate having my teacher accept me as an colleague and share what Okamoto Sensei taught us. To my other Un-Sensei , It is an honor to have you on the mat with us. It speaks volumes of your character. Thank you for all you have open my eyes to over the past couple of years. I look forward to the future with great excitement. Cheers!
