At the end of the seminar today, you asked for our personal experience, and in less than 30 seconds.
I thought that was brilliant of you. (I’ve been listening to Harry Potter books and my vocabulary has magically increased.)
Here I can thank you, again, for providing the aikido experience that I value, even if I’m dragged in nervous and timid.
And for the experience you provide that all the others value too — to the uchi dechi (a good group) and to the seriously intimidating sensei-s (just kidding) from near and far, and to everyone in between.
