What a fun New Year’s Party! January 11, 2015/7 Comments/in Aikido, Children’s Programs, Featured /by Aur HagerI’ve got to say, this party was a success. People started drifting in the door at around 4 pm. Most of the kids played downstairs in the dojo for a while, then joined the adults upstairs for sushi rolling. Before we ate, we had a short aikido class. A few rolls, a bit of knee walking, and last but not least, a hundred sword cuts. Sushi, dessert, then origami! I showed everyone how to make paper cranes, most of which went on to become mobiles to decorate the dojo. And after that, everyone went back downstairs to watch a movie – Kiki’s Delivery Service! And meanwhile, the adults sat outside ’round the campfire. And here are a few more pictures, which I thought should be in this post because they’re so sweet: I hope you all had a wonderful new year!
