'The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men gang aft agley'
(The best laid schemes of mice and men often go askew)
Robert Burns

My last blog entry, i was talking about to up my training and really preparing myself for Nidan with White Rose Aikikai,
Fate i guess had other ideas, as my gearbox has gone faulty, so i'm limited to public transport for at least 2 months while i save up for the repair and then my insurance.
The situation has forced me to take stock (as they say) and really look at the amount of miles and hours of travelling i do to attend my Aikido classes (approx 200 miles/week)
There is a dojo within 15mins walk, which i visited before, i actually went to train there, i wore my black belt (without thinking) and the Sensei was quite 'off' with me, he seemed to have a strange attitude - however beggars can't be choosers....and next Thurs i'll go and this time wear my old white belt, i'll let you know how it goes...

Hi Carina, i'll see what happens this week, i'm not too bothered about grades or politics at this stage. Just trying to find a local dojo to train at. I'm hoping things go well. Thanks and best wishes Chris

Hi Chris, Sometimes things happen because of a reason you will know in a future. I also have a dojo 2 min walk from my home, but the sensei told me and some collegues not to come again. I looked for another dojo, now I must drive 15 minutes, but it was one of the best things that happend to me. You have plenty of time to do the test, And maybe there is a third dojo you can go meanwhile...
