I especially wish to give a a special thanks and appreciation to my Aikido teachers' Sensei George Leonard, Sensei Wendy Palmer, Sensei Richard Heckler at their Tamalpais Dojo and Sensei Frank Doran at the Stanford University Aikido Club. They are inspiring examples of warriors who walk in peace. Their great example and dedication inspired me to stay on 'The Path'. http://www.tam-aikido.org
