Re: Kagami Biraki Promotions 2011
I wish I had seen this when it was originally posted. Suwannee Sensei of Thailand was my teacher for two or three years. She saw me struggling to follow a rapid-fire class taught by multiple teachers, and took me under her wing in the classes she taught. Her patient, step-by-step instruction allowed me to stay with Aikido, and I am still training, 14 years after leaving Thailand. I'm grateful for her contribution to my training, and pleased to learn of her promotion to Godan. I hope I can see her and Fukakusa Shihan some day. Belated congratulations, Fukakusa Shihan, Ahjahn Prapant, Ahjahn Suwanee, and Ahjahn Pisuttiwad.
