Winter Happy Training to all and to all a good flight.

Howdy!

I have just returned from a great winter workshop at Aikido of Reno and am stoked to get back on the mat. There were great classes, awesome black belt tests and very cool demonstrations. I know I am grateful for our very diverse and inclusive Aikido community, and I hope you are too. Thanks Aikido of Reno for another successful and educational event.

Now on to our stuff, we have a fantastic close of the year going on this month and we can’t wait to see you all on the mat. Check it out…
