I hope over a period of time to be able to gain some of the fluidity of movement you display, and couple this with the way you are able to relax your body whilst performing the techniques.I can honestly say that i am always left with a feeling of excitement and satisfaction after attending your classes which seem to end before they have begun.Looking forward to next Friday with anticipation.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;- With Respect Ray and Jordan</p> </blockquote> Adam Saunders 2010-05-20T09:53:34.8710007Z b6d28ca0-fac1-40b4-a669-f6a798d09987 News section now has commenting <p>It's always good to talk, and even better to share ideas and opinions, so now you can add your own comments, congratulations and suggestions in the new comments system of this Latest News section.</p> <p>To make a comment, click on the article title and you'll find comments at the bottom of the article page.</p> <p>Happy chatting!</p> Adam Saunders 2010-03-18T15:33:52.0927636Z 1c822882-c90d-4b2d-95cf-f31086a66516 New Gradings from Belgium <p style="text-align: center;"><a href="" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="" alt="" /></a></p> <p>Hanshi Moslin is pleased to announce the following grades which were awarded on Saturday 13th March 2010 at the University of Liege, Belgium: <strong>San-Dan Aikido</strong> awarded to <strong>Roland Voyeux</strong> and <strong>Emmanuel van Rintel</strong> and Ni-Dan to <strong>Eric Langelez</strong> all of the Aikibudo Kai asbl Jambes/Namur, Belgium and <strong>Ni-Dan</strong> awarded to <strong>Christiane Duchesnes</strong> of Musubi Aiki Dojo, Liege, Belgium.
