Thank you for the feedback. I'm slowly processing the pictures. Peter Boylan is sending me over 100 more on CD. When I get them and process them, I'll put up a web gallery.

Here is a nice picture of Goto Sensei making a point to us during jo keiko.

Please do come down, Jun. I think you'd have a great time.

Best Regards,

Hi Robyn,

You did fine. The secret to doing the kumitachi well is doing lots of suburi. The suburi are where we develope solid basic form.

Here are some more pictures:

Leslie in a nice kamae:

and again doing kumitachi with Dean from Birmingham:

Here is a good shot of Tim Sheldon Sensei, of Aikido of Richmond, listening to Goto Sensei explain a find point (note his good posture):

And a fine shot of Goto Sensei doing something or the other ushiro tsuki:

Best Regards,

Greg Jennings

Hi Greg!

Thanks for the encouragement!

By the way, I can't seem to find my watch. It's a small Batman watch with a black wristband. I'm only mentioned it because it might have fallen out of my bag at the seminar. Have you seen it?

Great Job

Greg,

I'd like to add my congratulations to you on your nidan. It is obvious from knowing you and seeing your technique and instruction that you have been very dedicated to training and in promoting aikido. Also, like everyone else at the seminar, I was very impressed by not only the outstanding instruction, but by all the hard work before, during and after the weekend of training and fellowship. Sincere thanks to Goto Sensei, Myers Sensei, you, Lynn, Paul and, I'm sure, others, for making the seminar such a great success.

Unfortunately, I haven't. I'll keep my eyes open, though.

Hi Bryan,

Things are very, very busy. Hence the tardiness of my reply.

To all that have asked, I'll speak with Goto Sensei about a video.

I hesitate to, however, because while the equipment used to film the seminar was professional quality, the camera crew was unfamiliar with aikido didn't have a good idea of what to film, angles to film, etc.

I.e., I'd hate to put something out that wasn't professional quality across the board.

Best Regards,

Greg Jennings

Forget what I said about my watch--I just found it the other day! I was SO happy!!

Greg, are you planning to go to the Pensacola seminar this weekend? My mom and I haven't forgotten about Lynn and we'd like to give you some pictures of the seminar to give to her---if you'll be at this next seminar, that is.

Good deal. I noticed it when we were at lunch Sunday and was bummed at the thought of you losing such an interesting watch.

I'm going to try to be there Sunday. It remains to be seen if I can get a "kitchen pass".

Best Regards,

Greg Jennings

I got my watch really cheap at the Warner Bros. Store before they closed down. I was worried that it was lost for good and I wouldn't be able to replace it!

I'm sorry I won't be seeing you there for the whole seminar! I hope you can make it Sunday. I'm afraid that I have no idea what "kitchen pass" means.

Have a good day, Greg!

I'm afraid you'll learn all too well what a kitchen pass is one of these days. It's a marital (not martial) thing.

I hope to see you there. I know that Leslie wanted to go over the kumitachi Goto Sensei covered at our seminar.

Best Regards,

Greg Jennings

Hi Greg,

It turned out that just yesterday, something came up for all 4 of us who were going to go. Clearly it worked out that we just aren't meant to go to this seminar but all of us are REALLY disappointed. I was so looking forward to it! We'll have to mail Kestra's pictures to her now. Hopefully we'll find another seminar close enough for us to go to in the next few months. We were really looking forward to seeing some of the people that we met at your seminar again at this one. If you still make it there on Sunday, please let us know whenever you have the time, how it was.

Robyn
