I'm just getting over an intense weekend.
Twenty odd members of White Rose Aikikai took their CL1 coaching course with the British Aikido Board this weekend at Dewsbury.
Saturday - This was the 'class room' component of the course with a lot of information to digest, coaching styles and methods of teaching - how to get your point across...a lot of food for thought.
Homework was to design a 12 lesson (6 week) Aikido course
with a detailed 2 lesson plan.
Sunday - This was the practical part of the course, teaching from one of your lesson plans for 15mins.
I had planned to teach basic morote dori - but was thrown a bit of a 'curve ball' when i was asked to teach the warm ups after the short lunch break, anyway all went well.
I think what i mostly received from the course (apart from the technical information and chance to teach the class) was the warm camaraderie, friendship and support on the mat.
My thanks to Sensei Frank Burlingham for delivering the course and putting up with us all.
Thanks to Sensei Riley for organising the course, and most of all to all fellow students and friends for a memorable weekend.

Hi Chris; I hope you and the family are all well. I am delighted to know that you have taken and passed your CL1; that is great news. I did mine April '99 with Sensei Bill Smith and I still fondly remember how much I enjoyed the course and the company. It was not and easy course, but it was very interesting and one more important step along your 'path'. Best, Billy.

Thanks for sharing your experience, I found too in every course I went to this warm camaraderie on the mat and it happens more when I go alone, that is always a good opportunity to meet new kind people..
