Our members in MAI Saudi Arabia were kind enough to invite us over to Dubai to participate in the first official visit of a Hombu Shihan to U.A.E. in the person of Makoto Ito Sensei. Ito Shihan was pleasantly surprised at seeing us at the event and well pleased to see familiar places in Dubai. From the time we arrived it was three days full of fruitful Aikido practice with new partners and some familiar faces from the Philippines as well.

Our third MAI Interclub for 2015 was recently held on July 11, 2015, Saturday at the MAI West Dojo in the heart of Caloocan. All MAI clubs were in attendance. The event started with an instructional on the 'jo' short staff by Sensei Raffy, ending with tips on ukemi for jo-kata. The event then proceeded to a full two-hour keiko session with the first hour headed by our host dojo, Sensei Doods. The weather was rainy in the morning, opening up to clear skies by noon. We happily enjoyed the post keiko socials and the shared feast as prepared by West Dojo thanks to Sensei Jimmy.
Next keiko will be in Santa Rosa Dojo in September. See you there.
