First Organization of a Demonstration by Students
To let the Students enjoy Aikido even more last May 28th a ‘Student Demonstration’ took place, and the about 50 participants in charge demonstrated the results of an intensive and continuous training. This was the first demonstration, which was planed and managed on a voluntary basis by the students, and the youth participated, too. At this very day the demonstration was celebrated with many new ideas being realized actively, and the image was transferred live to the larger Dojo at the first floor. The location of the demonstration was crowded with more than 100 visitors.
