I also tried to introduce one of the best Aikido traditions I have learnt in my years abroad: a good ukemi farewell for Mattia! Unfortunately we were not so many people at practice but first we had a couple of runs where Mattia was tori and applying some technique from a given attack to each of us, followed (of course) by a couple of runs of uke role, where we could enjoy some throwing around of Mattia! 🙂
Best Aikido farewell to wish him the best luck in this new step of his adventure.. and of course he has already got contacts with some Aikikai Aikido club in Florence!!
