Kuribayashi sensei in Belgium!

30 10 2015

After two weeks where I did not practice at all, touring Europe for business, I’ll be soon off to Bekgium for the last seminar this year with Kuribayashi sensei.. of course, not my last seminar this year! 🙂


Given the picture that had been used, I really have to go!

Condition probably not at best, and got very few hours sleeping in the past 2 nights.. but so looking forward to practice!

From next week, back to normal training habits! 🙂

I hate sewing!!

9 10 2015

I have been lucky in Norway and China where I always had someone close good at sewing… because besides hating it, I suck big time at that!!

But no help anymore so today, waiting for my neighbor to unlock the building door since this morning I forgot my keys inside, I did sew my hakama, a long postponed job (that I had planned to do in the lunch break, reason why I had all the necessary with me!).

Not a great job but I hope it will survive for Franck Noel sensei seminar in Stockholm.

Wonderful weather though for sitting outside.. let’s see how it will be in Sweden, but with friends and Aikido all will be perfect anyway!


another beautiful day

..now I am inside.. finishing packing then going to the airport.. Stockholm, I’m coming!! yeah 😉

I *should* care less!

Words are words, then the meaning is what make them special, but who decides that? Not the being special but the meaning of those words?
