Altogether, we held 7 sessions with about 60 people attending each time. I feel that everybody at Yoshinkan Aikido Munich is improving steadily.
We were lucky to visit Munich at the time of the world famous Oktoberfes. This festival is held in the middle of an amusement park with roller coasters and other attractions. There are 7 beer halls - each beer hall holds about 5000 people!
We also visited Neuschwanstein Castle. This fairy-tale castle, built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, was the model for Cinderella's Castle at Disneyland.
This trip was particularly enjoyable because of the chance to meet people like Stefan Bill and Mr Watanabe who come and stay at Ryu Dojo. Unforunately I drank too much of the delicious beer and put on lots of weight! Thank you to everyone at Yoshinkan Aikdio Munich for a wonderful time.
