On Tuesday, our little club was honoured to play host to none other
than Robert Mustard Sensei (7th Dan).
We crammed 24 people into the dojo for the 2 hour session. Many of the participants had not met Mustard Sensei before, and were therefore yet to experience his incredible aikido talent, and be treated to his excellent sense of fun and good humour.
Those who had met and trained with Mustard Sensei before were once again left in awe of his aikido, and with the amazing “aikido enthusiasm” one experiences after his sessions.
A fantastic evening was had by all who attended. Many thanks to all of you, and well done for your willingness to adapt to the differences with Yoshinkan aikido.
We had some club rank promotions to administer, and Mustard Sensei very kindly presented the new belts and certificates. Congratulations to Yvette Marshall and Tony Dowling for achieving their 5th Kyu. Very well deserved.
A massive thank you to Robert Mustard Sensei for the fantastic evening and to Neil Saunders for arranging the visit. Thanks to Mick Mercer, Andrew Medland and Mark Atkinson for travelling down for the evening to train and help coach us.
