Re: How Do You Do This ... Er, Internal Jump?

Justin,

If you are genuinely interesting in learning about this, I'd highly recommend skipping a weekend of fencing training and coming to the aunkai seminar. It is in Metro DC, NOVA area, so it is about as close as you are ever going to get!

I think you will find the people that are in attendance to be sincere, genuine, and open to working, not discussing or debating, but actually doing and showing.

I understand we all have our priorities and obligations....but it would seem to me, that someone who has spent as much time as you discussing this here would be willing to figure out a way to meet up and train.

Kevin,

Thank you for your kind thoughts and opinions. If I see something that is interesting from that group I will surely attend such a seminar.
