Makiling Aikido International successfully held its second Interclub Keiko event for the year 2016 at the UP Diliman Dojo inside the Vanguard Building, CHK on April 2, Saturday from 2PM to 4:30PM

The event was well attended with the students of the PE Classes joining in.

All in all it was a hot tiring afternoon of zagi, starting off with a workshop led by Sensei Raffy reviewing the basics of shikko walking technique. Our formal keiko session then followed with our yudansha instructors each providing a suwari waza technique. A real challenge for tender knees, but everyone made it through with smiles left to share.  As an added bonus, the whole practice was done with authentic Capoeira music playing full volume in the background. (It is a shared dojo, after all)

On a side note, the venue was where I got my first 6 hours of instruction in Aikido from Sensei Tom Edison Pena back in 1989. The place certainly has a history of martial arts practice behind it. (^o^)

Thanks to everyone for showing true determination.

Mata ne!
