Weekend Wrap Up

Sunday’s class with Debra Mamura-Belter Sensei was an epic event, one of the dojo’s best-attended. Thanks to all the people who made the drive down from Milwaukee and points North. Class was vigorous with lots of rolling and a wide variety of techniques. Takehara Sensei made an appearance with his daughter Susie, in town from San Francisco for three weeks to care for him as he recuperates. He commented that the class Belter Sensei taught was very much in the mold of the classes her father Norio Mamura Sensei used to teach. Mamura-Belter Sensei herself spoke to the class about the intertwined histories of Aikido in Milwaukee and Chicago. The spirit of camaraderie continued over to a big lunch at Tokyo Marina which met with the full approval of the Milwaukee visitors.
