I got to attend almost all of Kato Sensei's classes during the week or so he was at Suginami San Francisco in mid May. Tons of fun and lots of laughing but pretty confusing though after only a year of aikido and with no Japanese language abilities
, but I learned something
new and valuable each class even though it may not have been related to the technique focus of the day.
I was really intimidated by him at first, but he's very considerate of your training level when he comes by to give pointers.
I recognize a lot of faces in those Rocky Valley pics, hope you are all well!
