Looking for Aiki resources in Houston, TX

Greeting all,

I am in Houston for a good while it seems and am looking for one or two folks who would like to bow and fall with me. We can share ideas, test theories without ego getting in the way, and otherwise drink some hot tea and tell a few good stories about our journey.

My back yard or yours. There are many ways to bow and kiss the ground.

Chris
It is just a little to far for a quick stop by to see your yard and work on stuff. Have fun with it and see you the next time you are out this way..

Hi Gary. I saw John on a business trip last Monday. Don Fraley was there so we got to train a bit. As usual, I was in awe.

I will likely go down this Saturday, we have coffee, a sandwich and talk about it all. Work a few concepts and just be friends.....

What part of Houston are you in? Are you interested in visiting dojo, or just training 1 on 1? Unfortunately (or fortunately from my perspective as I'm not a fan of southeast Texas weather), I am not in Houston any more.

Best,
