Ki No Kenkyukai UK has started to arrange a seminar in London next year with Doshu Yoshigasaki’s four highest grades. This will be a rare opportunity to be taught by four ninth dans in one seminar.
Shihan Burgess will be in Zagreb later this month for the tenth anniversary of the dojo.

I will be travelling to Croatia, the first time since the pandemic. I am looking forward to wonderful Croatian hospitality.
Here is an interesting article detailing some recent studies on ageing.
The nature of Aikido allows relationships to be formed. This would, of course, be socially, as being within an international organisation, give us the opportunity to form bonds with people of varying culture and lifestyles. But also, with Aikido, we have to make physical contact with others to practise, which helps to keep the relationships real.
Also there are many examples of people still actively practicing well into their seventies. These are people who are just practicing regularly and earnestly, which has been enough for them to maintain good health.

Thank you for Dojo Ronin Ki Aikido Novara for hosting a seminar to remember Doshu Yoshigasaki. I enjoyed great food, good weather, kind hospitality and excellent teaching over the weekend and looking forward to visiting Italy again soon.
There will be no class next week at the City Dojo on Tuesday 31st January 2023. The classes at the Queensmead Sport Centre on Thursday and the children’s class will be running as normal.
There will be no classes this week in Ruislip. So there is no Adults class on the 4th August nor Children’s class on the 11th August. Next week we will return to our normal schedule.
The City club is now practising at the Deli Studios which is at 107 Leadenhall Street, EC3A 4AF. You will need to ask at the reception which studio we will be in. Until the end of August we will be in Studio 11.
The time remains between 6pm-8pm and will still cost £10 a session.
Due to the weather conditions, I suggest we cancel the Aikido class tomorrow 19th July 2022.
The class on Thursday in Ruislip on 21st July 2022 will run as usual.
The next class in the City will be 26th July at our new venue 107 Leadenhall Street. You can find more details of the new venue here
I will be teaching at the British Aikido Board National Course this year in September at Brunel University. The British Aikido Board is the national governing body for Aikido in this country. The course will be an opportunity to meet people from different Aikido organisations and let this wider family know of the Aikido we teach.
