nice, do you arrange to get these guys in town?
I first invited Yamashima down in 2004, and he's been coming back every year since. He'd been here before, but never to teach his own seminar, usually he'd just come down with Seijuro Masuda. I'd been training with him in Japan, so I encouraged him to come down after we moved back.
This year he's going to Kohala Aikikai on the Big Island.
