When it comes to milestones in an Aikido practioner’s journey, one’s shodan grading is no doubt one of them. This Saturday, two of our founding dojo members Brendan and Matt stepped up to test for this major achievement. They both performed excellent gradings and exhibited skills more than equal to the task. It was a absolute privilege and honour to sit on their grading panel.
Congratulations to both Brendan and Matt and also to all the ukes that assisted and demonstrated such fine ukemi skills. Also a big thank you to Eden for taking photographs and producing the below slideshow.
