View Full Version : Returning to England

Sorry for the boring thread.
I'm moving back to the SW of England this year, specifically the Bath area, and am looking to find (ideally!) an Iwama ryu dojo locally. The SW appears to be underserved in that department. Does anyone have any recommendations in that area. Of course if there are any great dojos of any style locally then I would also love to hear about those too.
Thanks for the help

If you're moving to Bath then I would suggest Templegate Aikido Dojo in Bristol, it is part of the National Aikido Federation led my Sensei Michael Narey.
You can visit their website at:

Well, it's not Iwama Ryu but there is an aikidojo in Bath. They train Mondays, Fridays and Sundays if memory serves me well. Their website is currently down but the url is http://www.bathaikido.org.uk/
I'll try and dig out a contact number for you if you wish.

Thanks for the replies. I'll check those dojos out. It appears that their is some guy in Bristol who is involved in Iwama ryu, but isn't listed on the Iwama GB website, so who knows.:)
The SW does seem to be a base for Ki Aikido, I wonder how that came about?
