Btw, by some coincidence, this just arrived on my email:

Subject: About training classes
hi, this is Cem A... from Turkey.
last year i saw your dojo and your classes on
discovery channel. i'm interested in your aikido
classes .do you have classes for foreigners? i mean is
there period for the students like me which wants to
come from abroad ? or do you have any schedule ... regards.
I get this kind of email all of the time. Many times, they are too far away to train in my school, but I always hope they will find some nice dojo where they can begin their Aikido practice. I will try to help them in their search. Thank you again,
