Aikido and whiskey talk

It has been a while since I’ve written a blog. Mainly because of lack of time and the many many great things we did in between. Like the whiskey wasting this weekend. Together with 2 of our students we went on a scavenger hunt for tasting the best whiskeys we could find. Maybe it’s the […]

Aikido Blessure

We hebben het allemaal wel eens meegemaakt of gezien bij andere aikidoka. Je loopt op de mat of daarbuiten een vervelende blessure op waardoor je een tijdje niet kan trainen.
