[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A friend of mine invited me to the training session of a local Aikido club. First, what couldn't be missed from my eye there, was special Japanese rituals being followed by every athlete - bows to the fight place and to each other. Then, they use Japanese words. The excercises, every movement, go quite smooth but energetically.
All together, it creates an atmosphere of something not for everybody, something outstanding.

As the shooting took place after 8 pm in the sports hall with lights off, I used shutter speed priority mode (1/320) to get more or less sharp pictures and then raised the brightness/contrast levels in Photoshop.
