Dennis, having been a part of one of those 'darkened nights' with Saotome Sensei I wonder if I missed it. He just taught me kote gaishi 200 different ways - without touching my wrist. Darn. Thanks for sharing such an intimate experience - it shows that Aikido allows us to transcend into all parts of existance and allows us to search beyond.
John, I still remember a single technique I did over 30 years ago. So will you. Great story, thanks for sharing. And you're right about that other too...
