I just want to take a moment and thank you for your kind words this morning. I can assure you that any improvement that I have made in Aikido comes from the ability of the teacher. The only way I know to approach learning is to be consist in effort…other than that you are responsible for any progress that occurs. I truly thank you for all of the time and effort you have put into teaching me this science. My only wish I could learn at a faster pace. Aikido has become an important part of my life and in many ways which I can’t explain helps me deal with life’s issues in a more mature manner. I thank you for that as well. Again thank you for your words of kindness and encouragement this morning.
