In General Back to England? Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #104 New 06-26-2006 04:11 AM
The prospect of going back to the UK for a business trip came up recently, and naturally after I figured out possible places to stay, assuming company allows the extravagence, the aikiaddict that I am, started checking for dojos in the Nottingham area which is where I would be. Shall just see whether the gentle aiki-elf me dares to enter the shodothug's dojos which seem to be the ones there which I've found. Of course that depends also on my sensei's permission and the sensei who run the respective dojos but we'll see...I have plenty of time to think about whether I want to pack my gi or not since the trip may not materialise in the end.

It'll be certainly a nostalgic trip though cos the first time I ever saw aikido was years ago when I was in university...funnily enough, at my relatively elderly 30+ years now, my coordination is actually a lot better than when I was in my late teens/early 20s. It's an art form I managed to take up in my 30s but way back then, I was even more uncoordinated than I am now, and also less sure of myself, so even though the teachers at my university were gentle and patient, my own self consciousness would have been the hardest thing to overcome.
