I passed my shodan exam today at the Dutch Aikikai Foundation in Amsterdam! My gratitude goes out to Francisca and Robert Sensei for teaching me, to Robin for being a fabulous uke, and to Anni and Idris for being present and supportive.
A big thank you also to everyone in the dojo who practiced with me or otherwise encouraged me. I have been with this dojo for almost three years and I have loved every second of it. It's my second home, a welcoming place where I can share my passion with likeminded people.
Thank you all.
