Just letting everyone know Im still around.
What a great time I had. I got there around 9:30am central time and met with Sensei Shereyk said our hello's got changed and began Zen meditation training, at some point in the 30 minutes of meditation Sensei Toyoda (President of AAA) and the rest of Sensei Shereyks students arived. What a great bunch. Just like being home again. Very comfortable. At 10:30 the fun began Mai ukemi basic then into a break fall then a leap into a roll, then Ushiro Ukemi the same. I thought this is going to be fun. Then into stretches and some Undo's.
Sensei Shereyk started us off with a shihonage waza then another and another and another before I knew it the first hour was up. Then Sensei Toyoda started the last hour with combination wazas one into another and finished with rendori. Man I have never had two hours just whip by. The day finished with a nice sit down at a local establishment.. "Deja Brew" where we talked shop exchanged information and had a nice relaxing time.All in all What a great group of people. And how lucky we are to have joined such an awesome organization the Aikido Association of America. I am personally looking forward to the next time we can all get together. I made some really good friends. Thanks to everyone.
Friday was great. got to see the students again after being off for a the week sick. It was a very rewarding class. Great to see everyone again.
Saturday was a very buzy day I was only going to hold the 2pm class but students kept coming in after every class so held class till 5pm. oads of fun.

Hey all. I don't want to bore you with updates second by second much less day by day so what I plan on doing is updating the blog when somthing worth writing about occures. so with that being said.
nothing to report today.
Ok, so you keep checking here for more tid bits of information.
Well I'm felling better today, not sure as to what was wrong the Dr. couldn't even come up with an Idea as to what it was but ruled out the things it wasn't. Wow, I paid for that. LOL So it looks like I'll be back Friday to teach and Saturday on a limited scedule. Really missed classes on Monday and was not looking forward to missing Friday and Saturday.
We are looking for mirrors like the ones that go on the back of a door aprox 1' x 5'. If any one has any that they might like to donate please contact either Sensei Palmer or myself.
Well off to my full time job see ya's in class.
