We had our first belt presentation ceremony last weekend where two of our students, Izz Sufi Syukrov and Ilyas Zikry were awarded the next stage in their aikido journey. This is the beginning of their journey of self-discovery that will test the limits of their mind, body, and spirit. The progression from white belt to the other colours move you from a blank slate, ready to be molded, to an individual that is balanced and skilled. Congratulations to both!
