    Great article, I like his views

    O-Sensei is one of the people, and there are very few, that my taijiquan shifu likes to watch old videos of. He is rather impressed by O-Sensei skill. But something Yoshimitsu Yamada said, made me think of my taijiquan shifu

    I have been on the ground several times after training with my shifu and most of the time I had no idea how I got there

    Also I often regret never training with Mitsunari Kanai when I lived near Boston, however in my defense, I did not even know he was there, until after I moved to NYS. This was before the days of the all pervasive internet

    Great article ! Currently started my Aiki Jiu Jitsu journey almost a year ago and it has been a real eye opener. Most days it feels like I am just learning to walk. I have so much more to learn and find myself on my back so often without knowing how I got there as well. lol
