Dear students and parents of Aikido of Champlain Valley, on Saturday,
February 7th, we will host a book release party and aikido demonstration in
celebration of Riki Moss's novel coauthored with the late  Terry Dobson,
  "An Obese White Gentleman in No Apparent Distress."  Terry Dobson was the
only American direct student of O Sensei, and lived in Vermont, dying in
1992.   He was a seminal influence (and originator) on verbal conflict
resolution and its relationship to Aikido.  He is also famous for his short
story "A Soft Answer: The Tokyo Train Story."

Riki is an artist and a longtime family friend (she was my father's high
school girlfriend!), and the book is about her relationship with Terry in
the context of a fictionalized autobiography. For more information, you can
go to our website, www.aikidovt.org. or terrydobson.com.

The book signing will include demonstrations conducted by the ACV children
and then adults focusing on Terry Dobson's legacy of integrating Aikido with
conflict resolution. Riki will also show old aikido movies of Terry Dobson
with O Sensei, do a reading from the book, and then move the reception to
Pine Street Artworks down the road.

The schedule for Saturday, February 7th:

10 am Children's Aikido Demonstration
10:30 am A book signing and reading from the novel "An Obese White Gentleman
In No Apparent Distress" by Riki Moss and Terry Dobson, followed by a film
and discussion
11:30am-12:30pm Adult's Aikido Demonstration and optional workshop

3:00-5:00pm A book signing, reading, conversation and refreshments at Pine
Street Artworks, 404 Pine Street (south of the Dojo)

Please let people know about this event.  In addition, I encourage people to
visit our revised website, which has new photographs, links and pages.  And
of course, let as many people know about the website, in particular the
revised "frequently asked questions" for children and adults. I would like
to thank Andre Messier, our webmaster, and Heidi Albright for their hard
work on the site.

Keep practicing, and thank you for your support,

Sincerely,



Benjamin Pincus
Dojo Cho
Executive Director
Aikido of Champlain Valley
257 Pine Street
