Re: skill, not rank

Sounds like proper behavior all around to me, Mike. Nice story.

(After being away for a few days)

Rachel,

I have not yet decided whether to attend Bertiaume Sensei's seminar here in Montreal yet, as I am considering another seminar in New England around Easter. Not that you can have too many seminars, but for the moment I feek I need time to "digest" what I have been shown and apply it (or not) to my regular training.

Rachel (as well as all of you!) feel free to contact me if you do come to Montreal; we could swap stories, train, and make new friends.

Nick, I know how you feel about needing to "digest" what you have learned. Look forward to meeting you at some seminar some time.

best,

Rachel
