Hi guys, I need all the help I can get, anyone have any info on Dojos in Sofia, Bulgaria and Kiev, Ukraine. Ill be visiting in the next two weeks and I'll be looking for something to do in the evenings to keep me out of the hotel bar!
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Have fun.

Dear James:
Never fear, you won't get stuck in the hotels. Contact Edward Germanov at baagoron@aster.net. He is President of the Bulgarian Aikido Association which is a member of Aikido Association International. He was a direct student of Fumio TOyoda Shihan and leads a rather large group of dojo throughout Bulgaria. In addition, right at the end of May, they are hosting an AAI seminar (the exact dates I am unsure) with Andy Sato Sensei instructing.

E-mail AikidoAmer@aol.com for exact seminar dates & info.
