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.

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.
