Re: Dan Harden-Zwolle, Netherlands May 7-8

Ernesto,
please remind Dan he's supposed to bring me some nettle cheese.
I had to explain what nettles were... sheesh, the guy's so unsophisticated.
Thanks.

Cheers, Joe

Re: Dan Harden-Zwolle, Netherlands May 7-8

"The Dutch are "too sophisticated" and "reserved" to be outspoken."

Now THAT'S funny! (Or is it just the Dutch that I know that seem to excel at, and perhaps take pride in, being outspoken? )

Glad to hear a good time was had by all: The good, The bad, and The Sven.

Isn't it nice to, at once, raise the bar, have a long way to go, AND have a Way () to get there helped along by someone willing, able and skilled at sharing . . . who also happens to be a heck of a nice guy?!?!

"How could it be so? It came without ribbons!... it came without tags!... it came without packages, boxes, or bags!"

Re: Dan Harden-Zwolle, Netherlands May 7-8

Well, all I will say is that by the time I left, Ernesto is the new
Bobbyparpa.
And I really was totally undone by his little girl...she just had to smile!
The English wiith that Dutch accent can still get me confused, I could have sworn this beautiful lady looked me in the eye and with a smile said `Talk trash.``
So I did....
In a low voice I said `Baby you look so good in that black outfit, so slinky....when she was startled she had said ``Āll I said was `Tot straks`` see you in a minute`` in dutch!!
Nederland rocks!!

England next!!!
I will write more about the dutch seminar later.
Cheers
Dan

Re: Dan Harden-Zwolle, Netherlands May 7-8

Bunny particularly liked breathing through the hands and feet, it gave my fur that nice extra fluffy feeling that a rabbit loves in summer.

The low kick cant have been aiki though: it still hurts and we all know aiki is about love and peace, not pain! So Bunny got a little shy, but the Dutch hosts gave me a carrott and I continued training.

Well I donīt know about anyone else but I am only coming back if there is another Sven. Iīve always loved forces of nature like tornados, hurricanes, natural disasters......like the Sven.
See Ya
Dan

Re: Dan Harden-Zwolle, Netherlands May 7-8

I have heard already rumours that The Sven will turn up at Allen's training (end of july) in our dojo.

Plenty of time to prepare ourselves.

Oh, and I thought it was the Finnish who are sophisticated and reserved. You know, like me?

Joe, I happen to live just a couple blocks away from the Anton Geesink dojo! I've trained there in the past, but a long time ago, now I train somewhere else.

Well, maybe you're right. At least we're not like the Germans as they seem to be lacking any kind of sense of humor. I mean c'mon, Nicholas? No fun at all to hang with that guy.



Geez, I'm kinda hanging in here as if I desperately don't want the feel of this seminar to end....

Re: Dan Harden-Zwolle, Netherlands May 7-8

I would, but Dan took them all when he left for England. Apparently they have to import the decent stuff.

Re: Dan Harden-Zwolle, Netherlands May 7-8

She might have but did you? Don't answer that...
Greg, I'm not really into all that kinky stuff. All this talk of connecting, sinking, rising, penetrating, pole shaking I dunno. After Dan's stay it all took on new meanings...

Yes, Dan can certainly bring new perspectives to many common things
