Iraqi Congratulations

By name all members of I.A.O (Iraqi Aikido Organization) and all Iraqi Aikidoka, I would like to say congratulation to our tutors (Atif Sensei & Mohannad Sensei) for their success in the test during Aikido Seminar which held in Amman/Jordan 8-10 Feb with (Franco Martufi Sensei) 5th Dan Aikikai..

- Atif Amin Sensei got his third Dan.
- Mohannad Al-Kaabi Sensei got his second Dan.

So we have to say them very BIG Congratulations.

Wissam Faraj

Re: Iraqi Congratulations

Congratulations, Wissam and company. Someday soon, I hope: we can practice together again at the next TAB, or whenever the opportunity arises.

Re: Iraqi Congratulations

Good Tiddings,
I wish you and your countrymen success and balance in this uncertain time in your country. Hopefully you can use your aikido to bridge your differences.

Take Care.

Re: Iraqi Congratulations

Congratulations. I was supposed to be in Jordan the second week in March, but not going now. Do you all train on a regular basis? It would be nice to possibly train with you if I do come, although my schedule and location would probably not permit it! Never know though!

Congratulations again!
