The techniques you showed at the camp were great. My guys love them.
I would strongly recommend this clinic to any judo, sambo, jiu-jitsu or wrestling athlete looking to improve your throwing ability. This is not your standard, "run of the mill" throwing clinic. Aaron showed me throws and variants of throws that I have never seen and that's after 38 years of judo and 25 years of sambo

i've watched just about every youtube video of mongolian wrestling, and it really does seem like brilliant stuff.

You've got to start somewhere.
I'll negotiate with the wife, but should be there as usual.

You bet, zero is fine. You'll have a great time.
I will show high flying stuff, as well as low impact takedowns.
In addition, for anyone coming from out of town if you inclined to stay in Seattle overnight, consider yourself welcome to Sunday's practice.
If there is enough folks headed this way, I would be happy to open up a special practice session for the out-of-towners.

As someone who was at the camp and saw the Mongolian techniques first hand, I have to second what Dynamo said. These techniques are great and I actually used one of them in no gi a week ago. Thanks for showing the technique, Aaron. I wish I could be in Washington for this seminar to work this stuff some more.

I'd pay more than $20/day to enjoy this seminar at Sambo Steve's place in NYC, should you ever want to come out this way.“Most people do not do, but take refuge in theory and talk, thinking that they will become good in this way” -- Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics, II.4

If you are planning on attending this seminar, give me a shout so I can keep a handle on the numbers.
