It's been just over a year at the Koga Culture aikido club. Some kids have come and others have gone. Here is the current full line-up. From kindergarten white belts to 5th grade 1st kyu.
As you can see by the pic the culture schools in Japan do not have regular tatami, just these inter-locking hard blue pads. Not only is taking ukemi a bit tough, but trying to slide your feet isn't so easy either. Regardless, the kids been working hard each and every Friday and I am seeing improvement. Time to get ready for next years Junior tournament!
