Sorry that the troop from Motor City Aikido won't be able to make the trek to participate in the celebrations this weekend, but we wanted to send our heartfelt congratulations to Georgette and everyone at North Coast Aikikai this weekend! Have fun, eat well and tap like you mean it! :D
We were both so saddened to hear that Vecchio Sensei has passed away.
Mr. Gail Skinner, known as “Tate” then, began training in Aikido in 1972 with Vecchio Sensei at Lakeland Community College. Marlene also practiced for more than a year. Vecchio Sensei was a dear friend to both of us and attended and gave a reading at our wedding 45 years ago. We always stayed in touch after we moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1977. We sent cards and letters, along with many trips back to visit Aikido of Cleveland in Mentor, Ohio. We also attended Aikido seminars held across the country, where we were able to reconnect with Vecchio Sensei and her students. We shared a friendship that continued during the good and not-so-good times, due to circumstances that life’s challenges bring. Gail has kept Sensei’s spirit of Aikido alive as the chief instructor of Aikido of the Canyon Lands in Tucson, Arizona for over 40 years. Our many friends at North Coast Aikikai also keep her spirit alive when they gather and practice .

So, Rest In Peace, Sensei Vecchio. You will be remembered and missed.
(Written by Tate and Marlene)

こんにちは、みなさん!
Thank you for always supporting me! ✧︎*。
If you like Japanese castles, I would like you to visit Osaka Castle at least once.
Osaka Castle Park is so vast that you can travel smoothly by train running in the park.
The inside of Osaka Castle's castle tower is a museum where valuable materials and tools used at that time are displayed.
I would be happy if I could convey this atmosphere to everyone even a little bit.
Thank you.♥︎︎∗︎*゚

Jeff had a fantastic Ni-Dan test! We are all very proud of you for training so hard and seeing it through. After the test, NCA celebrated with an old fashion summer cook-out. Yes, Linda had some great potato salad and David supplied the cut up tomatoes and onions, "Marko, you need to take some lessons from David", and we Celebrated Sensei's birthday at the same time, [fun was had by all!]

Treasured Sword - from our friends at Aikido of Central L.A.

Furuya Sensei posted this to his Daily Message on August 5, 2004.

When we consider what we have, we are always happy. But somehow, when we begin to think what we don't have, we are never satisfied. Isn't it better not to go there in the first place?

In Zen, there is a well known saying: "Ho-ken wa te ni ari.” "The Treasure Sword is in your hand." Everyone searches of their "treasure sword" (wisdom) yet, it is something which we already possess in our own hearts.

More often than not, we have everything we need to be happy but not realizing we already possess this "treasure sword," we are unhappy and complain about this and that.

Last week NCA celebrated the new year by participating in our annual Kagami-beraki class, bringing in the new year with energy and good vibs. This year the dojo received a shinto shrine Kamidana (神棚) donated by Sensei. Sensei is looking for all the help we can get.... Also, NCA would like to congratulate Georgette on her promotion to 6th dan. Georgette taught a class and then we all gathered to the "Blue Fin" restaurant to celebrate with fellow students and friends. Sensei presented a specially carved and engraved Bokken from Japan to Georgette from the school as a gift for her long dedication to Aikido and the school. "Fun was had by all!"
