Shimizu Sensei and Wakasensei Kenta have safely returned to Japan, where they taught in Maribor - Belgrade - Berlin and Munich. At the end of each seminar there have been some graduations.
Aikido is no competitive sport. We cannot win any cups. It is budo and first and foremost a struggle with oneself to overcome one’s weakness. Gradings are an indication that we are on the right path with our efforts.
