About five years ago I took over an Aikido group in Mexico. The process of sharing what I've learned forced me to be more attentive to everything I do and obviously to never stop learning and try to improve.
Definitely, ( and I'm sure I'm not talking only for myself) for all the Aikido Tendoryu practitioners, the first step to achieve these goals is training in the Tendokan. So I decided to travel to Japan and stay a bit longer than the usual time we spend for a seminar.
The nature of my job gives me certain freedom and flexibility so I could make all the arrangements to spend around three months there.
