Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu Setagaya Branch celebrated its second anniversary today.
○ Preservation, exploration, and development of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu
○ Human development through Budo (Japanese traditional martial arts)
○ Contribution to local communities, society and promotion international exchange
The above was set forth as the dojo management philosophy when the branch was established two years ago.
I can’t say yet that this philosophy has yet been realized, but I think that many students have gathered in the branch that was established from scratch, and that the framework as a dojo has been created considerably. Above all, I am truly grateful that we have been able to practice safely for the past two years without infection or injury even in the pandemic.
However, it has just taken a step forward.
“Practicing a thousand days is said to be discipline, and practicing ten thousand days is said to be refining.”
We will continue to do our best day by day.
Vice Headquarters Director and Setagaya Branch Chief
