Welcome to the New Year
Happy New Year greetings to all Aikidoka.
This has been another challenging year for us all, as we weave back and forth between PHO orders and our desire to practice "the way it used to be".
For many - perhaps most - of us, the pandemic has been an ongoing test of our ability to respond to change with flexible minds, bodies, and spirits.
In this spirit of hope for the new year, it is encouraging to see that Pat Olson, 5th dan, continues to practice and lead her students at Okanagan Aikikai in Kelowna. They have graciously given permission to share the photo of their New Year's practice.
Best Wishes to all for a good new year,
Barb Wolfe, president, BCAF
