We are so grateful to everyone who came to train with us at our Friendship Seminar on Saturday, August 24th. It was a privilege and a pleasure to learn from our guest instructors:
- Bill Gleason-sensei, 7th dan, Shobu Aikido of Boston
- Bob Toabe-sensei, 6th dan, MIT Aikido
- Sharon Kanai-sensei, 5th dan, New England Aikikai
- Daryl Muranaka-sensei, 4th dan, Harvard Aikikai
We made many new friends — at Shobu Aikido, New England Aikikai, Harvard Aikikai, Portsmouth Aikido, Boston Aikikai, and Aikido Ulm in Germany.
The event was a huge success — we were (pleasantly!) stunned at how many people came out to share their practice with us and support our dojo. It was thrilling and humbling to see the depth of community in the greater Boston area. We hope that we will have the chance to meet you again on the mat soon.
