We appreciate his contribution to San Mateo dojo and 
presented our gift to him on Feb. 27. 

He received a hakama which had our words of appreciation embroidered. Paul worked very hard to make this happen and delivered it to Shiomi sensei's home. Due to Covid19 circumstance, Michi had arranged the Zoom meeting which other kenshi could join to Paul online. Neil took these pictures. Thank you guys!

Sayonara, Shiomi sensei. Thank you for all of your wonderful kendo teaching and your friendship. Please drop in to our practice anytime when you come back to US
