Commenting, Roger Payne, MSMAS Founder & Aikido Teacher said:

“Once again this type of event shows the other side of Martial Arts, so often hidden from the public. The ability to get together in total harmony for the good of this worthy cause was a tremendous result for Richard and his Team, with a good day had by all.

My thanks to Hinton Sensei & Franco Sensei for attending from MSMAS, along with our other Aikido Kyu Grades, to make the day complete.
