Re: New Year's Eve/Day Aikido Plans?

Here it is an hour and a half approximately after Jun-san's post
and noone has come up with an answer on formal practice on
New Year's Eve or New Year's Day.

I have just been instructed by a "newbie" in the introductions,
and first Aikido class, and what sparked interest in Aikido threads
by Lari of Finland ---- that Finns do what they have decided to do.
(Not all of us do). I'm not a Finn but it's a good maxim to live
by, if possible.

So here's a suggestion: suppose someone has no local dojo
that has New Year Practice or has transportation problems.
Are you married to or living with someone who has practiced
Aikido? Or are friends visiting that have? Try at least ikkyo and
then the kansetsu nikyo thru sankyo, gently if necessary,
stronger if they want to..... Now I have to be like a Finn and
actually do what I say I am going to do. After all, it's going to
be a new decade and we want to set a good tone, don't we?
Sorry, Lari about the bad pun, I know you are a musician.
