Cherry Blossom Festival in Amstelveen

We waited for this occasion for 2 years. Our children's Aikido group gave a demonstration in the presense of the Mayor of Amstelveen, J H C van Zanen and the Japanese Ambassador to the Netherlands, Mr Nagamine. Young energy won over the cold spring, well-done everybody!

I love my kids group(s) and the ones on the mats today are the best among them . 

Together with the Japanese Ambassador and the Mayor of Amstelveen.
The Mayor asked if I have cold feet - now yes, though I never felt it on the mats...!
