We do aikido, which is a japanese martial art. We've
done it for a few years now. We enjoy it very much. It is very beautiful
and graceful and effective. It is a defensive martial art primarily.
Sean's Aikido Page and some reviews of dojos we have visited
We've also started learning Iaido, a japanese martial art of the sword.
What do you think, my friend? this is a wonderful Buddhist web site by Tan Chade Meng.
The Vegetarian Pages Sean is vegetarian although I am not anymore. I do enjoy his cooking though!
March 29-April 15, 1999:
We went on a cruise to China, South Korea and Japan! We were on the Nieuw Amsterdam with Holland America and will fly to Hong Kong. Then off to various parts of China, S. Korea and Japan. We spent a couple extra days in Osaka after the cruise to get to hang out in Japan some.
I'm in the process of putting my journal from the cruise on here so you can read all about it. I have to transcribe it from paper though, so I only have a few days written up. But I'm going to put them out for you and you can keep checking back to see if I have added more.

All Summer, 1999:
Sean has been going to IBM AIX classes all over. He is working on his IBM AIX Certified System Engineer certification. He's spent a lot of time in San Francisco taking classes and visiting with his brother. He got to surf a lot while he was out there. I've been stuck at home looking after the dogs... I wanted to take a trip to Club Valtur in Morocco for my birthday (Sept 1) but we were too busy. So we are planning to do it together next spring for our 10th anniversary (along with going to Hawaii). It's a great deal and there is no surcharge for traveling alone so it's especially good for single people who want to take an interesting trip alone.
November 3-7, 1999:
We are going to Washington, DC for a couple of days of sightseeing and then to the 1999 Aikido-L Seminar. It will be great to be able to meet the list people in person and train with them. Great teachers lined up too!
