The horns are worn with honor by our most senior member. This year it is Heinz!
It has become a tradition at Nippon Kan, that sometime well after the first snowfall, an evening party is held in the garden for senior students and staff. It is rather amusing, having a “macho” garden party in the middle of winter; we are all Aikidoka after all, and everyone enjoyed the good company and good food; cooked by Homma Kancho himself. This annual event is a chance to say thank you to all of our senior members for their contributions to the dojo throughout the year. It is also tradition for the most senior member to wear the bull horn hat, the bull being the logo and symbol for the Nippon Kan dojo.
A good time was had by all…
