Last weekend was a special one for all of us at Aikido Shudokan Singapore, starting off with the official opening of our very own dojo, presentation and award of "shihan" title for our teacher Ramlan Ortega Sensei, continuing onto an excellent seminar and ending off with our inaugural public demonstration featuring some of the top instructors of Aikido Shudokan International.
We would like to express our utmost gratitude to the instructors, Aiko Inoue Shihan, Joe Thambu Shuseiki Shihan, Ramlan Ortega Shihan, Ondra Musil Shihan, and Mark Hadiarja Kyoshi for their invaluable insights into Aikido and life on and off the mats.
Special thanks to all the members of Aikido Shudokan International from all around the world including Australia, Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia, Taiwan, Czech Republic, and Singapore who participated in our very first public demonstration - they truly displayed the Shudokan spirit and we believe it was successfully communicated to the audience.
Finally, we would like to thank everybody who came down to watch our public demonstration on Sunday. It was the first yoshinkan aikido demonstration in Singapore, and our very first public demonstration as Aikido Shudokan Singapore, which makes it an important and special moment in history for our organisation. Thank you all for being a part of this.
