This Spring our relatively new dojo ( 6 years ) had its first black belt tests for students. Andy, Geoff, and Richard have been training for 5 years at Pacific Shizen Aikido. The tests were very energetic! We had visitors joining us for the seminar from Whitehorse, Vancouver, Slocan, Nelson, and other Victoria dojos. Thank you to Jean-René Leduc Sensei for visiting and keeping us motivated.
If your heart is large enough to envelop your adversaries, you can see right through them and avoid their attacks. And once you envelop them, you will be able to guide them along the path indicated to you by heaven and earth.
