if only we had more room so more people could fit!
im excited to see all the all-stars that come from this place.

ps. Takahashi Sensei: thanks for your words. as a recent uchi deshi i put myself to the task of scaning our dojo's collection of photos. in the process ive learned a lot about the history, and little by little i am putting names to the faces that ive seen in there.
i recently put it together that one of the people popping up here and there (mostly in the 80's) is you!

Omedeto gozaimasu!

Sorry, I can't make it and that I have redirected one of the Aikido Institute Alumni, Wolfgang Baumgartner Sensei, to teach at a seminar in Santa Fe.

Wolfgang Sensei will be here at our dojo the following weekend, March 13-14.
