Re: Open Letter to My Students

I too, would like to apologize to Richard. I was not making fun of your name. I really thought it was Tony having a joke.

My intention was not to be disrespectful or rude to you or Tony. I was wrong. Please accept my apology.

Hi Henry,
I've seen the name "Richard Lowcock" used before as a pseudonym, which is why I made reference to it at the end of one of my posts. I thought it was a joke made by the poster and if I was wrong in my assumption, I'd like to take the opportunity now to publicly apologize.
I don't make fun of people with the intention of belittling them, so I said "great name" thinking I wasn't being insulting. However, since I am perceived as being insulting I am happy to apologize. It wasn't my intention.

Re: Open Letter to My Students

I often wish it was possible to train at my dojo more than twice a week.

Other times, I've recognized that as a middle aged gal (and for several years until recently, definitely a "mouse potato.") It often takes me half the week to recover from the strains of the previous session, and spend a lot of time smelling a bit like Tiger Balm. . .

I suppose I might be able to talk Sensei into holding another session, but could I keep up with the extra wear and tear on ME?
