I'd love to get my hands on those DVDs at least to check them out. I'm really looking forward to bukiwaza every morning in Iwama over the summer!

I'm hoping to raise enough money in the next month to get a flight out to California for the Tahoe Gashuku in May. Are you going this year?

Admonish your friends privately, but praise them openly.

In this indifferent world, where people become more and more estranged, it's really nice feeling to be that someone you miss and worry about!

Looks lovely etsdjued! As much as I like Santouka I always felt there wasn't enough differentiation between the ramens offered and I'd go through phases of feeling bored of their flavor. I hope this trend of limited editions keep up! But then again it doesn't help me if they don't serve it in SD.. :_(

it better ;)patience. that's the best word to drbseice your project. i know that Steve Caddy was referring to our patience, as followers of your work, but i think it's YOUR patience that should be recognized. you have completely immersed yourself in your subject, and it shows. your pictures feel true, not rushed by a looming filing deadline.i just wanted to let you know that your submission has paid off. this stuff is gold.-david

I will admit, some of those moves looked like they would not do so well in a real world suioatitn. BUT the rest, the slams, throws etc. Those could all work very well. Effectively slamming a guy onto hard concrete, and see how fast he gets up after you.

Aikido Quotes


  • O-Sensei: My students think I don't lose my center. That is not so; I simply recognize it sooner and get back faster.

  • Morihiro Saito Sensei: Aikido is generally believed to represent circular movements. Contrary to such belief, however, Aikido, in its true KI form, is a fierce art piercing straight through the center of opposition.

  • Furuya Sensei on Swordsmanship: Letting go of the idea of “sword” and the idea of “action” is the meaning behind “willow in the gentle breeze.” When the slight summer breeze blows, does the willow follow the “nature of the willow,” or does it follow the “nature of the breeze?” Please think about this - in this lies the essence of sword technique.
