Well Jorge,
Good luck on this Seminar. The price is right. Downright generous in fact. I will try to make it over. I do not think I have any plans. It would be good to meet you finally.
The idea for a Friendship Seminar started with one of our original members, Dr. Weldon Mauney who has had a vision of Aikido that promotes the highest ideals of the art that some people think are not attainable or worth while. Weldon was the first to encourage this and support it. The "price" also brings into play that people from other styles won't pay to learn what they aren't allowed to use in their style but they will attend to learn something new from a different style if it doesn't cost too much. This met our goals in that we want to breach the old barriers and make new friends.
By the way, be sure to preregister and let us know when you plan to attend so that we can keep our sponsors aware of the situation.
