I was in Hong Kong recently so toddled along to the HK Aikido Association just to see what it was like, with my sensei's permission of course. I had fun...watched one class to see if I could cope and then went back the following week when i had a free evening, to join in one class.

The people were certainly friendly which was nice and they were fine with having a stranger in their midst. I found the ukemi very slightly different which threw me (pun intended) a little and I found I was being rather clumsy and falling rather "splat" like instead of doing nice graceful rolls out. (Now where's my newly bought donovan waite dvd arriving? ) So I think to be more effective there, I'd have to actually change my ukemi very slightly so that I can cope better. Naturally my nage skills could also do with more polishing but I always figure being a good uke endears one more.

Let's see if my travels take me there again. I figure there's a reasonable chance I'll have to go up to HK more often due to my work so I may as well start getting to know the folk there.
