Just wanted to say Hi to all,
My Name is Douglas Davenport
I opened the Soseki Aikido Dojo in September of last year in Ramstein, Germany.
A very nice atmosphere here in the Dojo. Small but refined, I say refined, as I build it myself and Iím not the Handyman kind of guy but now I most certainly am. LOL. Iíll post some pics shortlyÖ..
Iím am not the Aikido god incarnation thatís for sure, I just enjoy Aikido. The friends that are made thought Aikido are one of kind, you might even say we are a strange lot in my humble opinion, thatís what I like about Aikido. If your ever in the Ramstein Area in Germany, look me upÖ.be happy to see you.

Hi Douglas,

I was born and raised in Kaiserslautern, so Ramstein is quite familiar to me (I live in the Stuttgart area now, though). Is your dojo on the army base, then?

I wish you all the best for your dojo :)

Howdy from the other side of Germany, Douglas! I'm in Grafenwoehr, about a stone's throw from Czech.

How far are you from Frankfort?

What style of Aikido do you teach?

(I have a guest in my class now from Frankfort.)
