Aikido 5th Kyu Grade!

Hearty congratulations go to Julie for making 5th Kyu grade last Wednesday night at The Ark, Hykeham. I happily presented her with her Yoshinkan Certification and red belt last night at The Boiler House. Julie often says that students who find martial arts the hardest, making the most effort to achieve, last the longest and get the most from it. I have observed her continued dedication with ups and downs over the previous few months and she has pushed on with great spirit through the highs and the lows. A definite example of excellence. Its understandably easy to allow petty things to get in the way or give up when the going gets tough, and thats why only those special few can enjoy Aikido to its full. He who climbs the highest peaks gets the best view or in this case she :)
