Junior Aikido World Championship

This year will be the first year that Aikido Mugenjuku Tokyo makes an appearance in the Junior World Championship. As a teacher I get nervous as I want to be able to prepare my students well enough so that they are competetive. So I feel a lot of pressure in that regard. However, when we create a purpose for training we can almost immediately notice a change in the students’ attitude as they begin to focus on their training. It’s really great to see a student improve or over come a personal challenge. The student in the following video was really scared of jumping breakfalls but by creating the correct envrionment for her, she’s been able to overcome her fear and she’s getting pretty good!
