I am feeling right at home here in Seattle, it's rained here every day so far.

I'm going to start heading south pretty soon, I've almost forgotten what the sun looks like.
And how are you enjoying your journey Mark? Have you stopped by Sensei Ledyard's dojo?

Re: Thoughts on summer training

I remember one seminar with Endo sensei in Germany, 35 °C outside, on the tatami I wouldn't even want to guess. It was crowded as always, the windows didn't open and the A/C didn't help at all, really.
I didn't stop training but it was very, very uncomfortable. And there were three water breaks in the final two hours.

At home, we don't have A/C at all, but a nice, big garage door that we can (and normally do) open when it's warm and dry. So far, it was always okay.

I wouldn't think about "taking the summer off" (unless I go on non-Aikido holiday, then it's fine...), but then I guess summers here in Germany are pretty harmless, anyway...
