    Cool. I just applied for a masters program over there at RPI.

    Wow I am just following Mr. Jones and Rain around today. Tomiki.org is the JAA/USA website for the organization and has tournament information for the Fall event. It should be a blast. I am a member of the Vassar club, Vassar-Aikido-Club.com, although still new. I love the style, having a small sampling of Kokikai (an Aikikai style) behind me. I am looking forward to BJJ soon, hoping to complement my Tomiki.

    I hate hitting people, so it is an easy choice to defer from a striking style. Submissions and pins are an entirely different story...

    RPI peeps on the net??! NEvvveer. lol.

    Man, albany seriously sucks ass as far as choices of schools go.

    I assume its only gotten worse as time's gone on? (I left about 3 years ago, moved my ass over here to japan)

    As for Faust, he's a great guy, but I recommend a guy called Jaime that does Daitoryu over in Schenectady, if you have a car.
    He's got a solid head on his shoulder and tends to lean towards more "practical" application, as far as I can remember.

    I mainly did striking myself, but unfortunately the guy closest to what you're looking for is a grad student that was passing by. Sparring was no gloves, throws to the concrete, always had a blast :)

    That being said, closest thing to Kyokushin is in menands i think:

    Dunno the quality, looking at the pics, it looks a little suspect, but in your case I'd say you'd have little choice but to go look it up ^^;

    Yeah check out Jaime. I worked out with him once years ago (with upyu), and I think Upyu did several times after that.

    The guy has a very interesting background, if he opens up to you.
