Re: Internal Power

Will create abbreviated transcript tonight. At work now... Pretty interesting. The guy in the gi is a former Japanese judo olympic medalist who should not be getting moved by skinny Kono..... In the lab the researcher was shocked that Kono's hamstrings and glutes were going slack just before the pea...

Re: Internal Power

Gordon, Holly is right on. She is approaching it from a different path but it is the same stuff. In fact I own the TRX suspension trainer and I am in the process of ordering the rip trainer.

Re: This past weekend in Leicester England

Was just chatting with a good friend of mine and I was telling him the issues I face with translating for my Sensei at seminars because he has a tendency of being a comedian and sometimes the jokes don't quite translate well to English...(Takagi Sensei). Then I remembered someone asked a question du...

This past weekend in Leicester England

Re: Internal Power

I got a note from Mike Spain who tracked down the second part of this article I had posted. Turns out the author is Robert John who lives in Japan and trains under Minoru Akuzawa. For those who don't know Akuzawa here is a link from the aikijournal. http://www.aikidojournal.com/article?articleID=699...
