Aikido of Maine
A message form Saotome Sensei!
I hope that all Aikidoka everywhere in the world stay safe. Aiki is the ability to recognize circumstances around you and adapt. For example, I hear you are using new technology to keep to keep connected. Very good!
I am very proud that my students have put safety first and closed their dojo. Taking care of the community was always in the heart of O’Sensei. If we help each other, we will get through this and return to our usual practice.
Please know that Patricia, my wife, and I are safe and taken care of here in Sarasota. I hope to see all of you soon.
Mitsugi Saotome, Shihan
