Happy new year
sisters and brothers out there!!
..Did you never give a damn in the first place?
I posted about a seminar I am going to teach in Trondheim at the beginning of the year but all considered, I think (or maybe many thinks) it has been my ego talking there.. As a matter of fact I miss teaching, but not for letting my ego grow stronger (again?.. I know many think that..), but for having a chance to practice the Aikido I love, work on the mats with like-minded people and try to understand something that at seminars one has not always time to doing that. Also there is an Aikido I manage to practice very seldom, Irie shihan‘s Aikido, and in this seminar I will have a chance to work a little on that and introduce it to my Norwegian friends, certainly something different (not better, not worse, just different, hoping to leave them with something to think about and maybe some curiosity to meet the source!). If people think it is my ego talking I am actually not so concern: I hope some of this people will be on the mats with me to try and experiment and see if some good feelings come out from the practice as well.. I can only repeat what I always say to people that call me teacher, as my Aiki-brother says:
So who am I? What do I want? Well, I am a student.
That is exactly what I am, what I have always been, and what I will be, independently where I will sit at the beginning of a class.. and I love it! So I want just study more soon in 2016!!
