    Unfortunately I haven't always been dedicated and the status quo is on constant attack. But when I'm "well" I generally get around 4 hours of physical training and 4 hours of mental training per day. Mostly though I just do it cause it's a lot of fun.

    EDIT: I just re-read all that. Kinda makes me sound like a prick.
    No it doesn't Believe me, I see the light....you can't do what you want to do in life if they are not in constant harmony!!

    No. I trained under Philip Gigler who ran Seattle Budokan Ninjutsu but has since moved to a new dojo in Vancouver . They were the only nearby dojo I could find that was accredited through Sensei Masaaki Hatsumi's main council in Japan.

    I donno if you like combining esoteric practices with your martial arts, but I met a teacher named Dennis Sharp who teaches Qi Gong, Tai Chi, and southern style Kung Fu. The man is incredible. His training is actually centered around the energies of the different seasons and he gives mini-lessons on how to utilize Qi and herbs and other "mysitcal" stuff... which I love! I've only had the pleasure of training under him for a couple of months, but he is a gifted teacher and practitioner. Despite being esoteric, he's very real and the skills he teaches you are quite useful.

    I believe he's offering classes through North Seattle Community College Extended Learning if that's anywhere near you. I'm thinking of signing up for it so I can reunite with him. But he also offers regular classes... at least, last I heard he did.
