Hi All,

I'll be going on a business trip to Europe for 2 weeks, including stops in Basel (Switzerland), Paris and Mulhouse (France).

Since it's unthinkable for me to spend this long without practice, I would appreciate any dojo recommendations from the forum members. I know I can use the dojo search option, which I'm gonna do anyway, but there are so many dojos (non in Mulhouse though :( ) out there, and it's quite confusing.

My style is Aikikai but I don't mind trying something new.

Thanks in advance.

Now we've got you - Bawhahahahahahaha


I always thought there was a club in Basel - possibly there is - please ask.

Hi Edward,
I'm trying to find a club in Mulhouse also. I'm waiting for a reply from my hosts there, as soon as I know I'll email you. BTW are you going to Peugeot? If you are don't go to Vesoul, just got back from there and it's really dead.
Have fun.

Peter: Thanks for the link. I will ask.

Jim: Thanks, please let me know the answer. I'm not going to Peugeot. I'll be staying in Mulhouse for 8 days, so it would be great to find a dojo since I have plenty of time.

If you are or can get anywhere near Freiburg, Germany (far southeast corner of Germany near both France and Switzerland), contact Andy Wilby. He's a personal friend and a damn fine aikidoka.

I've trained with him at the club in Freiburg and he recently came to the States for my wedding and a seminar we held. We conned him into teaching a session at the sem and it was simply smashing.

Andy is a Yorkshireman who's been in Germany over a decade. Lovely man, great voice (he sang while he did dishes, imagine, Elvis in yorkshire accent!), great aikido.

He's a long-time student of the late Noquet, and currently affiliated, IIRC, with Emmerson.

His e-mail is: andrew.wilby@quintiles.com
