Aikido Photos from Lucenec
Photo: Stefan Stenudd
My first seminar in Slovakia was in 1999, in the town of Lucenec - pretty much in the center of the country. Also in 2000 we had a seminar there, right after the one in Plzen, so it seems to become a tradition, and a most enjoyable one. A week full of aikido training, in the company of just as friendly as dedicated students. These photos are from the year 2000. Mostly I held the camera here, so I'm in almost none of them.
