I just wanted to let you know that my Sensei was very pleased with the scroll. He said he was looking for such a scroll for the new dojo.

Thank you to you and your wife for doing a great job.

Actually, the scroll is read "Take Musu Aiki"

Thank you for pointing that out. Yes, I was given that reading as Take Musu Aiki from the person who ordered the scroll...This is not common readings of the characters, so I was giving the On yomi in case their was difficulty, but I should have clarified.
