Some of you may have read the announcement from the USAF that Yamada Sensei will be taking two months off his teaching responsabilities in New York and elsewhere.
He is recovering from a successful medical procedure an that is the reason for his absence.
Sensei asked me to thank all of you for your good wishes and concerns. He is anxious to see everyone and to be back on the mat. You will most likely see him around the dojo next week. Please greet him warmly but refrain from asking about the details of his procedure. This will be much appreciated. I am happy to answer questions if you see me at the dojo. (No emails, please).
Thank you all for support and understanding.
