The warm-ups may seem a bit weird at first (along with the different hanmi stance), but you'll catch on quick. Have fun!
The different hanmi would be a little difficult, but I already use some of the warm-up drills when I lead class at CCA. I have a lot of respect for the pedagogical effectiveness of the Yoshinkan.
I'm very afraid that soccer season is going to get in the way of going to the seminar. Like Myers Sensei, I don't miss my kids' events for aikido.
