2012 Recieved 5th Dan from Motohiro Fukakusa Shihan.
2013 ~~~~ hoping to practice aikido until I am 120 years old.
2012 ~~~~ I believe that a sensei has to keep having dreams and keep making them come true, but more than that, a sensei has to assit his studets find their dreams and bliss, and encourage the, to follow their bliss and dreams.
My wish is that we will all teach in a way that our students will be better than us.

Lets practice Aikido!
