I recently went to a seminar with Hiroshi Ikeda, it was a blast! I learned alot about connecting up with your center, and I think I have a better overall understanding of how aikido works now. Well I must have learned something because when I came back home to my regular class my Sensei gave me an invitation to start training on Tuesday nights with the "advanced" class. Well I'm exited about this because it means that I can train more than one day a week now! Or maybe it's just because I can take falls fairly well now, who knows.
