I have just got back from the First Memorial Seminar for Doshu Yoshigasaki. This was the first occasion where Doshu’s four highest grades, all Ninth Dans, taught together at the same seminar. Understandably the seminar was both well attended and well received. Thank you to Shihan Bruno Maule and the Dojo Ronin Ki Aikido Novara for organising an excellent weekend and I look forward to seeing you soon.
In life, one is either getting better or worse. Unlike with inorganic material which can remain dormant for years without any improvement or degradation.
Aikido can be practiced from cradle to grave. We have students whose ages range from six to over eighty. It is art where one adapts the training to your own physique so no matter what shape or age you are now, you will be able to begin the journey today.
Along with the application in real life which one would expect in a martial art, we also are taught how to unify mind and body. This unification helps greatly with the challenges of daily life and can be used no matter how far you are along the journey.
We will be restarting training at our normal times from Thursday. This would mean the first class back in Ruislip will be this Thursday 6th January 7:30-9:30pm. The first class in the City will be next Tuesday 11th January between 6pm-8pm.
The children’s class will also resume on Sunday 9th January at 5:30pm
We will continue to follow the guidance set by the Government as advised by the British Aikido Board along with any safety measures required by the Queensmead Sports Centre and the Deli Studios where we practice.
