Michael, in advance of that, I encourage everyone to get hands on experience as much as possible now!
I will agree with that. Being thrown by Amdur sesei was definitly an experiece I will never forget. Members of my dojo who were in attedance ,and I have, continued to explore may of the ideas that were presented.
It was a fantastic seminar. My body is only just begining to recover from a very energetic weekend of training. The Aikido of Pittsburgh people are always great to work out with and it was wonderful to meet and train with so many people from different backgrounds.
