Your participation in the East Coast Aikido Bridge is always valuable! I am so glad you can make it this year. Every year as this discussion occurs and grows, so does the level of association among the diverse voices. Your input adds clarification by sheer weight of your experience. Your good humor and intense interest provides great motivation. As you know, from the level of dialogue provided by the teachers the last few years... this year should be nothing short of phenomenal. I am very glad you are coming.
We have at least eight teachers this year who will have a voice and share the floor. Coming from all corners of the country, many recognized organizations, and influences...this is a group who will add integrity to the common direction of Aikido. The returning teachers carry a sustained direction, the new teachers add the light of fresh perspective. The dialogue grows! In total, the years of experience, professional standing, and expertise makes this an Aiki learning experience of singular significance.
See you on the floor amigo!
