On Sunday, December 25, the Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu Setagaya Branch had the final practice in 2022 and held the kyu promotion examinations three times up to this day.
In the kyu promotion examination, a total of 15 students were promoted to 1-8 kyu as a result of strict reviewing of understanding and execution of the technique of Hiden Mokuroku Ikkajo including etiquette, posture and ukemi according to the level of each grade. Next year, dan promotion will finally come into view.
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, with aspirations and passion. Your continued support would be highly appreciated.
