:( No Aikido Friday Night

I couldn't make the early class tonight. Very sad indeed.

I thought there are 2 classes on Fridays? Why didn't you go to the 2nd one?

Simply put.... I'm not invited to the second class. Mr. Mulligan considers that class an advanced class and it's invitation only.

Despite my contributions to the dojo, my generally good ukemi, my consideration for my partners and my comittment (3-4 classes per week for 2 years now) I'm not allowed to come. It's just not enough I guess.

I once heard a rumor that he likes 3rd kyu and above in that class. Although there was a brief period where I know he made exceptions. I guess that period is over.

I imagine when he feels I'm ready I'll be invited. Perhaps when I take the 3rd kyu test this fall.

It's a shame too as I feel like I really get something out of his classes.

For now, I guess I'm just going to miss out on training.
