Hi, I am planning a few days holiday (4-5) in early May as a birthday present to myself. I am based in the UK so would like somewhere only a few hours flight away where I can practice aikido at the same time as taking a break, either at a seminar or at a club where overseas visitors are welcome. Anyone know of a club/venue that can offer sun, sea, sand and aikido in early May?

I practice a ki aikido style and am 1st Dan but welcome any style.

Thanks!

You're welcome in Atlanta! We have our spring training seminar from April 30-May 3 coming up. Check it out at the Aikido World Alliance site and let me know if we can help with any travel/lodging plans.

On the 23 and 24 May I will be giving a seminar in Gandia, near Valencia, Spanish and Dutch participants plus a couple from Japan. You are welcome. Aikido with internal principles and weapons following the line of Hiroshima Kato Shihan.

Hello Alec,

I hope you and Kaya are both keeping well. I assume the name given to Kato Shihan was a typo. I hope the seminar goes well.

Best wishes,

I trained at Ruglione Sensei's club in Florence (http://www.kidojo.it/homepage.php) a few years back, had a warm welcome. Plus Florence is a wonderful place to spend a day or two sightseeing and close to many other attractions (Pisa etc)

Tony Sergeant, one of Saito Sensei's senior students in Europe, used to hold workshops at his dojo in Kefalonia, Greece. I don't know whether that is still going, but Kefalonia is certainly a beautiful island.

This is his old dojo (http://www.cambridge-aikido.com) in Cambridge: you could contact them to see whether he might be still teaching in Greece.
