Col. Tim Conklin, USAF, Ret. came to visit Nippon Kan Dojo to witness the Embu by the 2019 Summer Uchideshis, thanks to the help from Capt. Doug Kelly, a former president of Aikido Nippon Kan and a trusted advisor to Homma Kancho.
Col. Tim Conklin has helped to offer us invaluable experiences at different USAF bases in the past.
After the Embu, we had lunch together and enjoyed one another’s company.
Our deep and sincere gratitude to Col. Conklin and Capt. Kelly.
