I hope this finds you well, and enjoying the start of your summer. I just returned from the seminar in Montreal hosted by Aikido de la Montagne. We have not been on the mat together for several years, so I was very happy to be reunited with many of you after such a long pause. The seminar schedule is slowly starting to pick up, and it’s nice for me to know that so many people have stayed dedicated to aikido during the pandemic.
I want to thank the instructors who have worked so hard to keep your dojos going, and to the students who continue to support their efforts. I hope we all remain healthy and can see each other soon. I’m off to Europe for seminars this summer, and I’m looking forward to seeing my friends overseas as well after all this time.
