Glad you've hook onto Haas. He's very good. As far as contacting authors for more info (or for Ted, a copy of the paper), check out the link to Gregory D. Olson at Montana State, author of one of the nikyo papers. I'm sure he'd be happy to supply reprints. And, Larry, say hi to Jim for me. I've trained with him off and on over the years and always had a fine time.
