Re: Daitoryu Ginjukai East Coast Intensive - August 24-27, 2012

Thanks for the reviews guys. Arrow, you left out a critical part! We ate a lot! We must be getting old, we used to say we drank a lot.

Also, that we made the group leaders teach the same techniques at the conclusion of the seminar just to be sure they were taking home all their corrections. Everyone improved significantly by the end of the weekend. Now the real test is when we see the branch leaders students. We will see if the critical info got transmitted correctly.

We are trying our best to continue Okamoto Sensei's art in it's truest form.

It's funny, after Okamoto Sensei would leave everyone would make sure they made it to the next class just to hear his critiques and corrections. Sensei Popkin would dole out the spankings, and we had our work to do. We had better made sure we fixed by the next time Okamoto came back,because he was looking for the improvement in technique. He would even call you out and say " I told you last time to do it like this!"

I can't wait till the next seminar!

I'll be teaching in the following places real soon

North Carolina - Oct 13
Seattle Oct 26-28
Orlando Nov 16-18

I hope to see you there
