The Year of the Horse is out of the gate.

The Chicago Aikido Club celebrated the Year of the Horse with wonderful practice sessions this past February 9; special thanks to guest instructor Marsha Turner Sensei, and chief instructor, Jo Takahara, Sensei. We were happy to welcome our extended Aikido Families from Wisconsin, as well as our fellows from the Chicago Aikikai for two hours of mindful practice, followed by a flavorful pot luck meal. We are fortunate to have such great friendships, through our Aikido practice, and the positive interaction on the mat was typical of our love for the art and each other. Laughter and a sincere effort to help each other improve, were conspicuous between partners. This is the Aikido we signed up for…the cooperative, relaxed, “feeling” that was the focus of both practice sessions. Happy Horse Year, to all.
