On Sunday, December 26, the Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu Setagaya Branch had the final practice in 2021 along with the promotion examination.
In the promotion examination, a total of 11 students were promoted to 3-8 kyu as a result of strictly judging the technique of Hiden Mokuroku Ikkajo including etiquette and behavior.
After the practice session, we held a party with due care to prevent infectious diseases. This was the first social gathering since the establishment of the Setagaya Branch, as the COVID-19 disasters continued. It was a very happy time with the people who gathered at this dojo to realize the bonds that were born there again.
With this, we could finish all practices and events of this year safely. I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the support and cooperation of my students and all related people.
Next year, all Setagaya Branch will continue to practice step by step, faithfully to the basics. Your continued support would be highly appreciated.
Vice Headquarters Director and Setagaya Branch Chief
