I want to thank you for allowing me to use the dojo as venue. I wanted to show them that we have beautiful dojo’s in the States, and not conduct the seminar in a gym. I appreciate it very much. Also thank you for recommending Yoshiko as a translator, she did a great job. I appreciate you opening it up to your students as well. It was nice to train with Rich, Robert and Tom again. I was surprised by the turnout, thank you for helping make that possible.
Arisue and Nakamichi commented on how beautiful the dojo was and they were impressed and liked the fact that you not only trained with Saito Sensei, but you are keeping his legacy going here in the U.S. Arisue was an uchideshi with Saito Sensei when he was in college and told a story about his memories of that time during the seminar on Saturday and explained when he walked into your dojo and saw the photo of Saito Sensei, what he felt. That was very cool to hear.
