Re: Freeform Bokken Drills to Develop Aiki Flow

Well, Blake, I don't have a dog in this fight either. But just for some perspective, please remember that Mike P. discounted his father leading ANY teaching in the US. Not only that, but the nature of what was relayed was not ACCURATE.

I don't think he is trying to discredit anyone...more like being very clear about some bad information, and who was or was not an "inside the door" student. Characterizing Mike's response as "knee jerk" etc. seems a bit unecessary to me.

Best,
Ron
