On Saturday June 4th, Oslo Aikido Dojo held a class for a bachelorette party from Brumunddal. The bride, Marte Kurud, is very interested in Japanese culture, and she got a pleasant surprise with aikido training in a keikogi and hakama. There were 10 keen participants on the mat, who had never tried aikido before. The class was led by Erik Vanem with Marius Hatlen and Thy Thy Vanem as assistants. The participants tried many variations of shihonage. They also got to try tachi-dori. Everyone seemed to be having fun on the mat and everyone was doing fine!
