"I realized very shortly after boarding the shuttle on Sat evening that I did not give you both the big hugs and thank you’s that you both so deserved, for the wonderful course this weekend! I am now sitting at my little desk in my little office, in the little school, in my little home town, after flying in at 7 am.

I am half asleep, but feel so grateful for all of the information you both gave me, that is swimming around in my brain at this very moment. Thank you both so much. I hope to be seeing you many more times in the future, as I am now an enthusiastic rider on the ATU train!!

Hugs from Homer, Alaska"

"I used to spend a lot of time in the pool as a competitive swimmer, but not for 12 hours as we did during the course....I think I am just now recovering. It was fun!"

David Valentine, DPT

"Thank you again for teaching a great class last weekend!! Today was my first day back in pool.  I loved the initiation of sit to stand sequence that we did on the steps.  I progressed it to the wobble board with a patient this morning to add in more of a balance component.  I also used 4 walls, pyramids, and build a move with several patients this morning. Thanks!"

Thank you again!"

"I loved the class!  I learned a lot, and we plan on starting a performance enhancement program in the pool for the area athletes.  We have a small pool so we will have to do some creative scheduling, but I think it is going to be a great thing."

"We enjoyed your course and learned so many new concepts and learned many great new ideas! With my evaluations, I am using your recommendation with the flowsheet by putting goals on the flowsheet followed by exercises to attain those goals."

"I learn a lot from this trip. I like you, Kiki and Kim. You all are good teachers and instructors. I will utilize what l learn from ATU and spread the good ideas to Hong Kong."

Stephen Chan, Physiotherapist, Aq

"My supervisor couldn't believe I basically had my own private week of training since the classes were so small. I feel so fortunate to have had such a unique opportunity to learn from the three of you and the very few students who shared the classes with me. What a lovely group of people to spend time with!  I learned something from every single person who attended."
