Best Mon-grading ever! (… in our club)


On thursday, february 16th. our club experienced the unexpected event of a Mon-grading of the first degree 😋.

Hans Mathias Myrvoll was surprisingly asked by Erik Vanem to get his first degree in aikido. He was assisted by another newcomer, Daniel Myrseth and they both did quite well.

Hans Mathias earned both the 13th and 12th Mon-degree. That day he had an audience of at least 10 aikidoka’s. We congratulate him with his first milestone in the world of aikido 👍

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.
