Practice on Tuesday 7th November

Hi All

Next Tuesday’s class will start at 7:00 with a normal class until around 8:30.

The remainder of the class will be using Jo and possibly bokken, so please bring weapons if you have them.

If you’re a beginner, don’t worry, just come along and enjoy a different aspect of aikido. If you can’t make the 7:00 start, again, don’t worry, just come at normal time 8:00.

From  this point on, the first session in each month will be of this format.

Cheers – Steve

Thursday June 1st – No practice

Hi everyone, I think I’ve managed to contact you all already, either in person or by text, but just in case I’ve missed some of you, there won’t be any practice this Thursday as both Cathy and I are not able to take the class.

Practice is still on tonight, but you get the night off on Thursday.

All back to normal next week.

Cheers Steve


Beginners Grading 30th March

There will be a grading for the beginners who have been with us for a while on the last Thursday in March (30th).

Even if you haven’t been told you will be grading, please come along to support those who are and also to see what is expected on your first grading.

There is also an article on this website in the members area, which explains what the instructors are looking for when you grade, which you may find useful.

Please speak to either myself or Cathy if you have any questions.

Cheers Steve
