What a great picture of Connor and Ethan in their yellow belts. A picture of success and dedication. The two boys started Aikido with Eiryukan around September 2011 and have advanced 3 grades, blue, green and now to 7th Kyu. If you were at our amazing Christmas party you would have seen the boys, as white belts getting stuck in from the off and having a great time, working on their balance and posture almost invisibly gaining the benefits of regular and spirited training. The boys had some element of hypermobility and when they started Aikido there were several conversations with their parents about how this may affect them. Im really proud to say that in less than a year both boys have developed skillfully and made top progress on their co-ordination and durability. They always give loads of energy and concentrate on the lesson for the most part, as boys will be boys! Over summer time they have attended all of their regular classes at The Boiler House, Woodfield Avenue. While many other students were away rightfully having a holiday these two boys were firing 100% on the black belt path. Good luck and best Wishes for your future successes boys, Eiryukan will be right behind you all the way.
