Re: Dan Hardin in Atlanta, Georgia January 2014

Thanks to everyone for coming to a great seminar. The training was hard, the jokes were funny and we all [maybe] sucked a little less. In wrestling with a couple ways to say several things, I feel it best to split some of my comments.

For those of you who have trained with Dan, we had a great weekend of basic drills, paired exercises and solo exercises. We also saw some great ground applications. For those of you who have not yet gotten to work with Dan, these exercises are based on a simple premise, "aiki" is real, it exists inside us and it can be expressed in our movement. The training was both strenuous and challenging. We discussed both the strengths of aiki and better ways to practice aiki.

Stayed tuned for our next visit.
