I just put up a lecture that Dan Kawakami sensei gave last week. He talks about breathing, posture, zen, and the nature of aikido training. Approx 27 min. long.

Hey Keith!

Kawakami sensei was down for a while but he's recovered well and is helping teach classes again.

Hope you're well,

Doing well after being down for a while myself . I'm sorry Kawakami sensei wasn't at the Misogi Barai this year -- his ability in that area is inspirational!

Take care,

Re: Kawakami sensei lecture online

I should also add that I'm looking forward to seeing Kawakami-sensei at camp this year. I really enjoyed his periodic Friday sessions back when. Interesting thing for me is that there are things he said to me over the years that come back to me on a regular basis. Fantastic teacher.

Worst thing I ever did, however, was sit next to him at a Misogi Barai years ago. I tried to sync my breathing with his, but geez, it made me realize how good and deep his breathing is compared to my wheezy capacity. Okay, truthfully it was probably the best thing I ever did, but it really showed me how far I had to go on that.
