I was one of the hundreds that travelled to Cardiff to attend the Doshu 2010 course.
It was a great privilege to train under Doshu, and despite the cramped mat conditions we all tried our best and enjoyed ourselves.
Then Sunday morning my regular class with Sensei Derrick (white rose aikikai) getting folks ready for the course and grading next Sunday so a lot of 5th Kyu basics, it's good to go back to basics.
