My name is Kirby Watson & I am Chief Instructor of the United Kingdom Kaze Arashi Ryu. I have been studying Kaze Arashi Ryu since 1985 with Henri Robert Vilaire Sensei and have previously studied Hakko Ryu Ju Jutsu (with the Shihan Roy J Hobbs & Antonio Garcia) & Aiki Goshin Do (with Shihan Roland Maroteaux). For teaching purposes Kaze Arashi Ryu is divided into the three main divisions of Aiki Ju Jutsu, Ken Jutsu & Jo Jutsu.
Each year I run an International Aiki Seminar in Lancashire, England, featuring Traditional Aikido, Aiki Ju Jutsu and another related art. Featured arts in the past have included Takeda Ryu Aiki no Jutsu & Aikido, Yoshinkan Aikido & Katori Shinto Ryu. This year's seminar will be over the weekend of November 6/7 & will, as last year, host instructors of Traditional Aikido & Katori Shinto Ryu. Please contact me via my e-mail address if you'd like to attend or see profiles of the instructors. If you'd like to know more about Kaze Arashi Ryu please visit the website www.kazearashiryu.org
I have just finished a five year stint writing a monthly column for the British magazine "Traditional Karate" where I gave my views on all things Aiki plus several other political, social & technical points. If anyone would like copies of my Aiki aticles I'd be happy to share them.
Keep up the training!

Hello Watson Sensei and welcome to Aikiweb. I don't know if you'll remember me but I trained with you in the early/mid 90's. Enjoyed it thoroughly and, as you can see, stayed with the Aiki arts from then onwards.
Hope you, Dave, Jonathon et al are well and hope you'll stick around on here.
