Thanks to everyone who came out for the New Year’s practice. It was a great class — let’s keep that positive energy going through the rest of the year!

Yumi’s remarks at the end of the class were quite moving… that Aikido practice builds up in practitioners an important reserve of energy that can help them handle other troubles in their lives, like her health issues last year. Through regular practice you can build up internal energy (ki) that will be available when you need it.
I am looking forward to training with you all in 2020.
It was great to spend some time after class at the reception and nice to see some old faces back in the dojo. Don’t forget the Winter Party at Aubrie’s on Feb. 1!
