Manual In Progress

7/9/10 I have had basically the same group of 4 - 6 guys for a while now, although a couple of the guys have been actively recruiting among new people so there were two new people and 3 guys returning for their three week "refresher" this morning. While I am not doing many new techniques, I am able to focus more on the basics of breathing to center and relaxing, turning vulnerability into a strength, and moving smoothly and in balance.

NOTE: I have spoken with three aikidoka over the last while who are interested in starting a similar program in their area. In response to this I have been working on writing a manual based in part on this blog, your comments and suggestions and some of my own mind trash. I will keep you posted.
I have come across a blog that is proving to be very useful, [COLOR=#3333FF]www.ptsdcombat.blogspot.com[/COLOR] I would recommend it.
