Springtime and NYA’s 50th Anniversary

Finally, spring has arrived after a long and bad winter. The dojo’s bulletin board has many flyers of spring seminars all over the country.

As everybody knows already, this year is the 50th anniversary of NYA. Many people are expecting a big celebration. That makes me very happy and I appreciate your concern very much.

I’d like to offer you one big opportunity to celebrate at one time with everybody together, but I found out it is very difficult to get a big place for that in New York City. Instead, the NYA is planning a small celebration on June 7th at the dojo. Everybody is welcome but please do not expect a big event.

So far, at every seminar I went to, people gave me big congratulations and I appreciate it so much. I also appreciated that you gave me so many gifts. But for me, just your thoughts are enough.

Please don’t give me things I can give to somebody. Just give me things I can’t give to anybody. That is, a big hug from the ladies and a handshake from the guys.

On June 7th, the dojo will open for the party at 4pm. At around 5pm I’d like to make a speech.

I’m looking forward to seeing you there.
