Missed a week of aikido as I had to travel to Yunnan, China on business. And amazingly enough bumped into a fellow dojo mate at the airport when he sat next to me in the waiting lounge. He happend to be travelling on the same flight there and back on business too and had he not chosen to sit next to me, I would never have been aware he was on the same trip at all. Needless to say he failed to recognise me as I often do too when I see my dojomates not in the dogi. I suspect he's just never actually noticed me in the dojo before since it's a big dojo and the girls rarely practice with the guys and the gap between his rank and mine are considerable. It was fun nevertheless on the way home cos he took time out to come sit and chat to while away the time no doubt off a 4 hour flight on the way back.

I found out from him that his brother had started an aikido dojo in Guangzhou province and had 11 students. It's not that easy to find aikido dojos in China given the history of the two countries and the strong tradition of Chinese martial arts. So it's good to hear that it's started up and I certainly hope it flourishes after this initial start.

I'm going to have to miss another week because of Chinese New Year next week when the dojo shuts down for slightly over a week. So this month I'm only really getting about 2 weeks of training.
