"Tesfaye Tekelua's Journey"

Posted 2009-03-10 15:40:40 by Jun Akiyama
News URL: http://www.tadias.com/2009/03/10/the...t-aikido-dojo/

Here is a nice article entitled "The Art of Peace, Tesfaye Tekelu’s Journey & Ethiopia’s First Aikido Dojo" about Tesfaye Tekelu who recently became the first aikido black belt in Ethiopia. From the article, "For the past three years, Tesfaye Tekelu, Co-Founder and Manager of the Awassa Youth Campus (AYC), has been training at Aikido dojos around the world. Last month, he completed leadership training courses and took his Black Belt exam under renowned Aikido instructor Richard Strozzi-Heckler Sensei in Petaluma, California."

That is a great article, very inspiring, thanks for bringing it to wider attention. Proof that aikido does work in the way that O Sensei intended.

Success is having what you want. Happiness is wanting what you have.

He was at one of the seminars I attended last year. Seemed like a very nice guy. I enjoyed training with him.
