I found this video celebrating the birthday of a dojo's sensei and thought everyone might enjoy seeing some creative celebration.


Hopefully all dojo's are similarly harmonious.

Thank you for sharing that video. I enjoyed the song, and I almost feel like I've met Doran Sensei for the first time. He must be the first 28 year old rokudan in the history of the ASU; he is a prodigy indeed!

I had not seen this video before. It certainly is a loving, good-humored, and fitting tribute to a very dedicated teacher. Thanks for posting it.

Hi folks,

Since it hasn't been pointed out yet, I wanted to clarify that Frank Doran sensei is currently 7th dan and is the head of the California Aikido Federation (http://www.ai-ki-do.org) division II. The CAF has no formal organizational ties with ASU (Aikido Schools of Ueshiba) and Doran sensei has never been a part of ASU.
