44+1- happy Aikido birthday to me!

7 07 2016

Special treat for my birthday yesterday night at Aikido practice at Aikido Amsterdam dojo: I hope it represents the introduction of a tradition developed in Norway.

What better way for Aikido people to celebrate their birthday on the mats receiving Aikido “hugs” in forms of throws and techniques by the fellow aikidokas?

I cannot think of a better way to show Aikido love 🙂

Night light of A’dam skies

23 06 2016

Two nights ago, a strong slightly descendant full moon (no editing, point and shot with my mobile)..

Lonely Moon for a Lonely Man

..last night though a thunderstorm woke me up: fantastic lights as well, the lightnings and the sky, strong wind splashing against my windows the heavy rain..

Now the sun shines, but I biked to work in rain outfit and I got all prepared for going and coming from Aikido practice (8 km about per direction!).

Hail and locusts, we are ready for you!





Take my baby out for a spin…

31 05 2016

The sunny water (yeah, finally!), a ling working day, no Aikido practice and too many thoughts on my mind found a very good cure (even if I was far from dressed properly!):

Iaido in the sun

Mainly repetitions of basic cuts, shoatto from standing position and 8 cuts sequence..

Enough though to make me miss my Iaido obi and all my Iaido notes..

A good spin that helped my mind demons to settle a bit and reminded me of the joy of swinging my sword! Unfortunately left me with a boring pain in my left arm/elbow/hand (signs of my old arthritis coming back maybe or some very wrong movement).

…what you do not see in the picture is that I was in shorts, sandals and listening to heavy metal with earphones!! Not a proper uniform.. 😛





New good morning..

4 05 2016

..a kind I still have to get used..

I forgot about sleeping with pretty girls and waking up with their weight on my arm, but these first days in my new room I am getting used to a different awakening:

New good mornings New good mornings
New good mornings New good mornings

The cat is a “she”, named Gucci (!), but please, too easy to make the joke that I weak up anyway with a p…. 😉 I still prefer the other kind, even if this little one is very sweet (so far!).
