A big thank you to all who helped make our first ACNJ "Ai Seminar" (Aikido International Friendship Seminar) this past weekend a success beyond words.
The entire event, both on and off the mat, simply glowed beyond adequate description. For all who had the good fortune to be in attendance it was a wonderfully full weekend (and more!) of great training (6 classes/day) combined with the joy and laughter of buoyant people, practice, potlucks and parties.
My deepest thanks also to my friends Senseis Jorge Rojo Guttierez from Chile, Nelson Requena from Venezuela, Daniel Lance from France, Wilkon Vriesman from the Netherlands and special guest Francis Takahashi Shihan for their friendship and commitment, as well as the support from friends and dojo-cho from across the US and across the oceans.
This sure-to-be-repeated seminar was the most enriching event I have ever had the privilege of being a part of and I look forward to all the positive results that are sure to follow.
