Re: Hiroshi Kato, 8th dan in Houston, Tx
It's been a great experience getting ready for this seminar. It will be our first since our dojo only started on January the 20th of this year. Up until the time of our planning meeting, I didn't feel that we had bonded yet but since then, I have seen big changes in the members as they are working together, helping each other, volunteering for various jobs and giving financial donations. I am especially proud of the fact that they have stepped up to the plate in our attempt to fund this seminar internally. I have continually shared with them about what kind of school we want to be and they have sacrificed to bring Kato sensei to South Texas to the Aikido community at no charge. There's lots of work to do and we have a long way to go yet.
Expecting the best,
