This week we shall (thanks to clover) be going to study newaza with grand master Yukimura Haruki.

I am SO excited to be doing this. It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn from one of the very best! It’s always exciting for me to have an opportunity to learn so as the date approaches I’m really starting to feel the excitement.

Clover surprised me with this trip for my birthday treat, how cool is that? I’ll be blogging about the experience afterwards but for now… how cool is that?
