Diler. S – SPAIN

When the first lockdown was announced in Spain, in March, my initial concern was about for how long I would not be able to train, for some it may sound ridiculous, but it was a serious concern.  Luckily one of us suggested using zoom to arrange online trainings.  Many of  our teachers  around  Europe responded very quickly and got organized to provide us with online- trainings.  

Michael was one of them. He even took it one step further and built up his Online Dojo by which he made his classes available to us almost every day.

For me online-training in the very beginning was a  substitute until I would be back on the mat again.  However, it did not take me long to appreciate the value of the solo training  especially under instruction of highly competent teachers. Now I am considering it complementary to my training on the mat, and I am trying to join as many sessions as I can.

Michael, beside being a great teacher, gave us the comfort of knowing that Aikido is just a click away for us under any circumstances.  For that I am grateful.”
