      Sorry Mevan but I am not quite sure what you are reffering to.

      Hello Koyo
      I'm a new member, and user simon s told me that you are a very respected member here, and that you have studied Aikido for 50 years. The reason why I wanted to contact you is because of the fact that just yesterday I saw this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCjySZuVDkQ
      And, combined with Ueshiba's statement that he could "dodge bullets", now I am convinced that he was just a fraud and that all the clips of him throwing 30 people consecutively are staged, with the students having been told what to do. Do you think so, and if not, can you tell me why?

      Moreover, has Aikido changed your mind, the way you think, or "enlightened" you as it is said? Or is Ueshiba a total charlatan?

      Thanks for your time,
      have a beautiful day

      Thanks Koyo. Looks like I won't make tonight after all (can't get a baby sitter). I'll definately be back next week and square Chris up then.

      Thanks again.

      Hi Koyo,

      sorry to keep posting on this page, but just to let you know I won't be able to make training this Wednesday due to a training course I'm on in Edinburgh (the following Wednesday might be a problem too, but due to child care issues. Working on it!). I was just wondering if Chris is going ahead with the Blitz order this week if I could order the Judogi (7) Bokken etc.? I can post a cheque over (or direct bank transfer if that's easier).

      Many thanks, see you soon.

      HI Janko

      The books are almost all just pictures of techniques. Check out Koyo's book here on MAP.

      Ask at the next practice I am sure someone will loan you a book. I gace most of mine away to students. Glad you liked the tickle fest..it can only get better.

      Hi Billy, enjoyed last nights "tickle-fest"; I have some quality bruises along both wrists to prove it! I meant to ask last night, are there any Aikido books you'd recommend reading? I'd like to learn what I can between classes (if possible), even if it's just picking up terminology etc..

      Cheers!

      The guys who train with me are crosstrainers so I am sure you will enjoy it. Only started building up the membership so you can be sure of one on one instruction.

      cheers

      Thanks Koyo. That sounds good. Govanhill isn't too far from me. I'll give you a call tomorrow if that's OK?
