An inspiring day of practice!
Congratulations to Scott Andrews on his excellent 2nd kyu test.
Getting together with 200+ of the most dedicated aikidoka in the country for practice is always great. But this camp we took a moment to reflect on 50 years of our Sensei, Shuji Maruyama, and his impact on our lives and on martial arts in America. It is an honor to have him as our instructor and to be among his many lifelong students. Among the many testimonials and proclamations was one from our own Rochester city mayor's office honoring Sensei's positive influence on our community and declaring March 10th, 2018 as Shuji Maruyama Day.
