Great seminar, Clyde Takeguchi Shihan's Annual seminar at Capital Aikikai of Syracuse

 It was so much fun and great seminar this weekend. About 50 people attended the seminar, Dojo was  so cloudy. almost no free space. Takeguchi Shihan focused on "Connect yourself, and set". That was something easy to miss in daily training, but very important thing. We trained Kumi-Jo in the second day. Concept was still same, "connect and set". All practitioner smiled through the seminar, such a warmful and relaxed seminar. See you next year!
