For an old man like me, I can’t believe it’s almost end of the year, so this will be my greeting for end of the year and for a new year. A year went by so fast.
I just finished my last seminar of this year in Vienna Austria where I had a wonderful time and received the same warm hospitality as I had every place I went this year for seminars. Can you believe that this year I went to Europe seven times? I spent more time than staying in NY.
Every place I go in Europe, it seems to me that people are happy to spend time on the mat as much as I spend time on the mat with you. It makes me very happy and makes me to proud of myself to see a big improvement in your Aikido quality each time I see you.
Another year is right around the corner and I’m looking forward to another meaningful year. I feel very honored when I receive invitations from many countries and I feel bad to say “No”, due to my tight schedule. I hope you understand. The seminar is March in Belgium and Barcelona and Germany in August are main events for many reasons, such as promotions. So please try your best to attend one of them.
Have a merry X’mas and a happy new year.
