Aikido Birseck Zuishokan

Urs Trachsler stands with Suganuma Sensei holding the calligraphy for Aikido Birseck Zuishokan that Suganuma Sensei wrote for his dojo. “Zuishokan” (瑞祥館) uses the character for Switzerland “zui” with the first character of Shoheijuku “sho“, along with the commonly used character for house or hall “kan“, resulting in a name meaning, depending on interpretation, “Hall of Auspicious Good Omens” or “Blessed Swiss Hall”.
