    On June 25th I visited the IMAF’s Detroit training camp. It has been nine years since my last visit to the Michigan camp. It was good seeing the old crew from back in the day. I was joined by WMAA member Paul Janulis, who has been less visible the last couple years to oversea commitments.

    It was good seeing how everyone took Professor’s art and tailored it to themselves. My purpose for the visit was to discuss with the participants the details of the Family Reunion camp scheduled for July 14 - 17, 2011. I was there for most of the day. During the diner break I participated in a meeting with several of the IMAF Masters and Guros to clear the air on some of the issues that have popped up over the years. No miracles happened from this discussion. We aren’t sitting around the campfire singing songs and roasting marshmallows. However we have a much better understanding how and why things happened the way they did.

    I think that this meeting between the two organizations helped moving us forward and not dwelling over the past. There are still things that need to be addressed and we may never agree on everything, but there is now less tension between the two groups.
