The Mugen Aoyama Dojo Shinsa held last weekend with great results from all participants. The approach to the grading this time was quite different this time a lot of focus on techniques and self-awareness rather than all out full contact impact sparing which can potentially lead to injuries. Yamaguchi-Sensei did a great job in designing this new style of grading and everyone appreciated it. As always everyone put in the effort, learned a lot, and of course, had an enjoyable time. We all left the dojo that day looking forward to our next class putting in that extra effort to improve and to continue challenging ourselves.
