Tonight I was, as usual on Wednesdays, at the Dojo and trained. Now, approaching bed, I check my Insta flow. I stumbled upon this! You find Aikido there, at right! Oh, this is nerdery. But what to expect? Yes, exactly! I am Aikido! We are spread over the world, and that is a strong feeling. In a sense, it becomes a universal language, similar to music. An understanding beyond words, a connection. And coming with the Radical Inclusiveness I experience with Aikido culture, I can really subscribe to the sentiment – “Aikido – the Art of Peace”! — (Source: linked…

Repeat? A day off line, with frenetic focus on resatbilization and rest. Chill, now, plz … Beyond Aikido, with Mika still jumpy of his cold, with my Karin in deeeep cough cough, with Soto in frenetic reproduction wantings, I feel that it’s great to have Uchi and Deshi just being cool in all this frenzy.

Mika training with his new shoes! And Spring Première at Halvars Ice Cream!| #MikaTheHero #PhotoStory
Mika has some new shoes, Converse style. We were at the playground at Vasaparken today, and he took the opportunity to train walking with his new shoes. And it went great! Above a slideshow! Afterwards, we rewarded us with the true Norrköping Spring Première – Halvars Glass! Halvars Ice Cream! Delightful, as always. A nice day out! Spring is here! Hooray!

Yesterday, Mika took his first determined strong independent steps! He has taken small cautious steps before, but this was the real thing! Captured on video, here are some still frames from that vid! You can see an Insta-edited version over at @relovetheworld! Proud parents, we are!
Today we were at Folkparken (“People’s Park”), where they at the moment take away some trees that are ill. Fascinating to see the big trucks, right Mika? Then we went to the playground part of the park, in the summerish-feeling spring. Wonderful!
After many years of serving as a chairman of our Aikido and Judo club IF Dojo Norrköping, Leif Kinnersjö (6 Dan Aikido, practising Aikido since the seventies), decided to step down and hand over the leadership. And that is to Kimmo Osen, 4 Dan. Good luck, Kimmo! You’re a great spirit. And thank you, Leif! I know you will get back this Fall (Leif was injured when he was working with some stuff, and had an operation, now in rehab), just to train with us. It has been a sheer pleasure to take part of your vast knowledge and experience of…
