I’m a shodan (1st dan black belt) in the martial art of Aikido, and have learnt in both the Ki Aikido (Shin Shin Toitsu) and the Yuishinkai traditions.
Although I practice less than I used to (and would like to) now, I still practice occasionally at my home club in Coldharbour, and at some point may get round to establishing a branch of Aikido for Daily Life in
Southampton wherever I’m currently living too.
I may occasionally blog about Aikido here, including any updates as to when and whether I start a club myself.
[Current Aikido status: should really get around to buying a new Gi for Sweden (my current one didn’t fit in the plane luggage) and start practising in Stockholm]
