I originally did mean Gary. Talk to him at every tournament, and he's on my friends list. Cool guy.
We will be bringing a some players from Budokan look forward to seeing you there.
Mark is a great guy (hell'va deashi-barai,) Ralph is a true gentleman, (his hane-goshi is worht studying,) and the new space is great. (New compared to the old aerobics shack...) Give Mark my regards, I may be back in Bellingham and stop in for a practice late winter. Any of the WWU folks are always welcome with us if you find yourself in Seattle.
