After the extensive training and to celebrate Sensei Dye's 55th year in the martial arts, Nilo Sensei presented Sensei Dye with a special gift of a "Wind Catcher" which symbolizes and represents capturing the very essence of movement (wind) and the "Aiki" in one's training and teachings in the martial arts.

Special thanks goes to Nilo Sensei for coming to the Honbu Dojo to train and continuing to represent Shuyokan Ryu through his teachings of his students at the Shuseikan in Qatar. Osu!
