1st weekend Mar08

On the first weekend of March 2008, an APARN retinue travelled to attend the seminar conducted by Christian Tissier Shihan in the Tenchi Sintra premises. That retinue included Belgian aikido practitioners accompanying APARN'S Technical Director, Luc Deweys Sensei.
We thank all that made this travel possible.

For further recall

The past three days have been, no doubt, to remember!
The seminar began Friday at the Korpus Healthclub in Matosinhos, with a welcome to Luc Deweys Sensei and the five guests accompanying him in this journey.
It was a smooth session, to prepare physically for the Sunday session in Braga (Gimnobraga) but also to increase the rythm of those travelling to Sintra for the seminar with Christian Tissier Shihan the following day (this will be the subject of another post).
On Sunday, with the axiety of waking up ate 7:00 a.m., some restlessness was predictable since the scent of examinations was hanging in the air...
The practice was more technical than physical as, due to the number of practitioners present, there wasn't much room for falls. About an hour before the end of this session came the long waited break and...EXAMINATIONS!!!It couldn't have ended better than with the announcement of the promotions!

We couldn't end this post without thanking, from the bottom of our hearts, our friends Abdellah, Dimitri, Hassan, Manu and Marcos.

Aiki greatings!
