ASU has just posted the Kagami Biraki promotions for 2019. Tom and Mary McIntire Sensei, both Juku Instructors, have been promoted to Rokyudan! This is in recognition of both their skills as Aikidoka and their service to ASU and the greater Aikido community. It is a tremendous privilege to have them as our instructors. Please join me in congratulating them and all the other ASU members promoted to Yondan and above this year, including Nashville’s own Steve Matthews, who was promoted to Godan. Please join us for our dojo celebration of Kagami Biraki at class on Friday, January 18th at 6:30 PM.
