Almost 7 years for registration? Or, it could be an error not picked up in proof-reading. I won't be surprised if you are summoned to Tokyo to pick up your new cert from Doshu

Now I'm really starting to feel like I'm in a time slip. I hope they don't expect me to pay again...

Best,

Chris

Thanks! Kind of an old thread, isn't it

Best,

I was sure I congratulated Chris this time last year. A bit soon for rokudan, surely, even after spending all that time with Dan and Mike?

Somehow the 2012 thread got mixed with the 2011 thread. Or maybe the years are just starting to blur together as I get older

Best,

Chris

Re: Aikikai Hombu Dojo: 2012 Kagami Biraki Promotions List

Congratulations to Patricia Hendrick Sensei! It's nice to see her getting recognition from Hombu for her efforts.

Smile Re: Aikikai Hombu Dojo: 2012 Kagami Biraki Promotions List

it was noteworthy and special for me to see that 4 of the 7th dan promotions (and not to mention one 5th) in this list were people that started and/or played a big part in the history of my dojo.
Congrats to Hoa Newens, Pat Hendricks, Bernice Tom, and to my sensei, Kim Peuser.
Congrats to all others as well!

Wow, my dojo is seriously top heavy. Out of the maybe 10 regulars, two are on that list. Congrats, Peter and Andrew!
