Congratulations to all American aikidoists who have duly received recognition, and Dan promotions from Aikikai Foundation.

Since I am from Hawaii, I would like to extend a special aloha, and recognition of the achievements of Shihans Randy Scoville, Gayne Sogi and Alan Nagahisa, who received their 7th dans at the latest Kagami Biraki ceremonies. (Thank you Christopher Li Sensei)

I am confident that all who follow the teachings of Ueshiba Morihei, as well as of the proven mentors of their choice, will maintain the highest standards of conduct and respect for the Founder's gift to the world.

Your on Peter. I'll even add paying for the beer at a good pub if you ever find yourself in Quebec City!

Oh, and congratulations Szczepan! Looking forward to training with you again. This May perhaps, I'm not likely to miss that seminar since I am expected to test for nidan.

A belated congratulations to my teacher, Lia Suzuki Sensei on promotion to 6th dan (Aikikai). Lia Sensei's teacher is Takeda Yoshinobu Shihan (8th dan). She began her study of aikido with William Gleason Sensei. Again, congratulations! We'll have a celebration when she comes to Pennsylvania in April.
