Forgot to update this. Found a new home for the program. Teaching at an Okinawan Shorin-ryu dojo nearby for the last month or so. Apr 21, 2019

      You locked my thread due to political discussion. I thought in the locker room forum it was like general discussion and you could chat about anything? My apologies if I am mistaken

      Have you tried a local Crossfit?

        I've tried with a couple of them. Can't even get a response (owners haven't been in when I visited). Currently checking out martial arts schools with big openings in their schedule.

      Still looking for a new home for the program. Was hoping to be up and running again by the start of the year...

      Wondering if taking a job would give me more time to build up my program.

      Wishing I had a Redman suit (useful) and a Wing Chun dummy (no idea what I'd do with it).

      I've always found Asian grappling arts interesting. Sanchin Ryu teaches a lot of hand to hand tech similar to Aikido. The way Aikido direct energy is simply amazing. What are your thoughts on Sreven Segal?

        Nihon Goshin Aikido is a different art (same "Aikido" family of arts), but I have experience with Ueshiba's Aikido. Segal seems to be good at the techniques, though it's hard to tell in most demos because of the nature of the attacks they use. Having watched some video of him teaching at seminars, he appears to be a good instructor.

      Rethinking curriculum organization. Again.

    I might update this later, for now, the brief version:

    My primary art is Nihon Goshin Aikido (started in 1988) - I teach the Shojin-ryu style, a curriculum I created between 2005 and 2014, which remains pretty close to the mainstream. Some background in Shotokan Karate, Kodokan Judo, a smattering of other explorations (some FMA, bits of various jujitsu, a tad of BJJ, some time with Ueshiba's Aikido, and other bits here and there).
