Re: Saotome Sensei Internal Power Training Exercise

Classic! And I know where Saotome Sensei got the hat: at the Winter Intensive in St. Pete a couple years ago. You two look like great friends, and probably are. You must have something in common...I can't quite place it...a certain je ne sais quoi...well I was thinking many decades of Aikido dedication? nah. Same height? no. Same weight? no. Went to high school together? no. Je ne sais pas. ;-) I'm glad to see you two having a fun, laid-back moment.

So. You've been holding out on us ... but in fairness to Amdur's upcoming book, I must say, you are plainly not hidden.

Cordially,
