Interesting ASU Stuff
NSA had a visitor a little while back. Someone from the asu branch of aikido came for a visit. He was kind enough to lead a class. Was sort of like having a mini seminar. His aikido was really interesting. It was soft and effective. I'd definitely like to see more of that style of aikido some day.
In some sends I felt a little bit like some lumbering barbarian after experiencing that class. I was able to do a reasonable job of doing his techniques during the class. Unfortunately the exposure was too short for me to permanently assimilate anything.
