Great knife seminar with Don Soucy

The seminar's already happened (some idiot didn't think to post it here ahead of time) but I had to post a great big thank you to Don -- he graciously came to our dojo and taught knife techniques and tanto dori. It was fantastic, Don was great, very generous with his time and knowledge. The first three hours flew by in about 5 minutes, I swear. And he showed links to aikido techniques.

So thanks to him and to Terri for showing us dimwitted aikidoka what end of a knife to use, and if he's ever in your neighborhood, chase him down.

Got it the day of the seminar, fluffy was scared that we would show up. Then he couldn't teach, he would be laughing too much !!

Re: Great knife seminar with Don Soucy

Sorry, I'm just not spreading fluffernuter with a naginata.

Nutella, on the other hand, would be totally worth it.
