Congratulations to Ali for passing his Nidan (2nd Dan) Black Belt grading from Hombu Dojo – Japan.
The grading was don by Wilko Vriesman Sensei, 6th Dan, founder of the Dutch Aikikai Foundation
The certificate was presented to him by Nasser Bayram Sensei, 4th dan.
A typical Aikido dojo is often a clean and spacious area with mats covering the floor to provide a safe training surface. Students wear traditional white uniforms called “keikogi” and often follow a specific etiquette or protocol, which may include bowing, lining up, and following a formal training structure. The instructor, usually called “sensei,” provides guidance and leads the class.
Aikido dojos may vary in size and style, and some dojos may emphasize particular aspects of Aikido, such as self-defense, spiritual development, or physical fitness. It is essential for individuals interested in practicing Aikido to find a dojo that aligns with their goals and values and to approach their training with an open mind and a willingness to learn and grow in the art.
