E-news, Nov. 20 2017

Thanks to everyone who participated in and supported the CAF Examination Committee seminar Nov. 18-19. And a very special thanks to Yumi Nakamura-sensei, who puts much more work into these events than anyone realizes.

We had a great practice and a chance to renew acquaintanceships with some old Aikido friends.

Congratulations to Arunas, who had a successful grading for shodan!

And our appreciation goes to to several Hokuryukai yudansha, who took ukemi in support of some of the test candidates – including those from other dojos.

I took a few snapshots while waiting to take the group photo. They are on Flickr.

Hold the dates: tentative dates are available for Osawa-sensei’s summer camp in Calgary this year…  June 23 to June 29. We will confirm as soon as possible and supply additional information once it is available.

Regards,

Jim Barnes
Aikido Hokuryukai
