This is great stuff. Thanks Chris!
Do you by any chance know a good Aikido instructor on the East Coast? I live in New Jersey.
I am learning Chen style hunyuan Taiji now, but I think Aikido would be a complementary art that I would like to explore down the road.
I'm not that familiar with the landscape in New Jersey, but if you catch Dan Harden when he's down there in March
there should be someone who can give you information on the kinds of places that you would probably be interested in if you're coming from a Chen perspective.
