Bossman back from Japan vacation


Well that was fun. My wife and I just got back from our 10 day vacation to Japan as part of my Aikido federation‘s training trip (outside of Media Mechanic, I am an Aikido martial arts instructor). This was our first long term vacation in nearly 10 years. This was our way of celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary.

We spent four days at Ki Society World Headquarters while I participated in Aikido training with the world’s top Ki Aikido Master. Afterwards we traveled for six days of site seeing around Japan. It was fantastic and refreshing. We were able to visit Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo in addition to the prefect that our Aikido Federation’s World Headquarter’s is located in. Japan is a truly beautiful country with wonderfully polite people. We highly recommend visiting when you can.
