Texas Update

The Hut Texas has had a grading with Mr. Chad Hatcher being promoted to 3rd Kyu. I was promoted to 1st kyu (lumps are now healed). In other news I have relocated to Goldendale Washington. Where I have obtained permission to start teaching basic Aikido at the local middle school. I am looking forward to the experience. Congratulations to all who were promoted both in New Mexico and in Texas. I will post updates on the new Washington school as things start to progress. Thank You to Sensei Al Montemar for the many years of training. I will look forward to many visits back to Dallas. Mo, Jonathan, Danny and Carlton I will be making the trip back for your 4th kyu Grading for certain. Train well

New Mexico update

Congratulations to Kelly Lynch. Kelly has received his 3rd kyu at last Mondays class. It was a long time coming. We also have had a couple of new students join the fold. We would like to welcome Dave Phancook and Eli, sorry Eli your last name escapes me. Welcome back Jeff Glaze, 1st kyu and Artie Chestnut, 3rd kyu. These two gentlemen have found there way back after a long time off the mat. They were with us when the club was located on highway 70 many years ago. It's good to have more bodies on the mat.
