Japanese Guest Reviews Lincoln and Our Aikido

Last weekend we had a nice visit from Shuken Sato. He trains at Ryu dojo in Tokyo and works as a professional photographer. He took time to capture many images of the City and do some training at our dojo in North Hykeham. Here is his review.

“It is the best for me to choose on one thing to focus on. 

I like Lincoln. This city gives me an opportunity to mental space to do it.

I walked around this city and take a lot of pictures with peace of mind. It lets me have peaceful and relaxing feelings.

Although I live in Tokyo, there is a lot of information in words everywhere in Tokyo. In big cities like Tokyo, It is sometimes difficult to understand the importance of connecting with others.

It is an ideal Aikido that one gets on very well with one’s partner. It needs a quiet place to concentrate. The founder of Aikido, which is the Professor Morihei Ueshiba, chose appropriate place to practice aikido in his later years. Its place is a calm and around Nature.

I visit Lincoln to do Aikido in Eiryukan Dojo as you know. Lincoln is pleasant clean environment. It is one of the best place to do Aikido.
