If you ever suspected your professional life should have been spent playing golf or tennis and perhaps you’ve devoted too much time pursuing martial arts?  Well a trip like this will dispel any such notion.  You are part of a grand international Aikido community, a terrific fraternity of grand souls growing in Ueshiba’s paradoxical art.

We were invited to sail from Key West Florida to Havana Cuba and while there check out the local Aikido dojos.  Had no idea we would be treated like rock stars especially since the Aikido was really excellent. So I had to teach some of the aikijujitsu and tactical work just to have something different to share.

To Omar Lam Sensei and his wonderful students – Domo Arigato Gozaimatsu!

Here is a link with photos and video from the training sessions.
