I really hope Dennis starts feeling better -- if it takes moving to the Phillipines for his health to improve, then I'm glad for it. I'll be really disappointed when he leaves -- especially since it will most likely be soon after I get back from Japan. :(

I miss him over here.


Still waiting on news about the seminar this past weekend with Hitohiro Sensei! :)

Dennis was hurting pretty bad on Saturday, but he seemed to feel better on Sunday and even practiced Sunday afternoon. You could hear his kiai all the way across the room.

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.
