Inside Nihon Goshin Aikido ~ #77

January - February 2020

How is your New Year’s Resolution going?  Struggling?  Did you even set a goal this year?  Well, here is a link to an article I wrote on Goal Setting which may help you keep those goals in focus, or allow you to clearly define goals and then acheive them.

Also - moving forward in 2020, we will be moving to a video format, with shorter newletters, and more video links.  

We are posting a lot of content on our youtube channel; in fact, new videos are being posted weekly.
