Hello. Ive been practicing aikido for a little over a year in Japan. Any former (or current) Aichi Ken residents around? Next February I take my Ikkyu test, and I am currently battling a hangover from last nights year end aikido party. Good luck with your Aikido

Charles- thanks for the reply. Youre in Mishima? Ill have to break out my map to find that. Are you close to Hamamatsu? What type of Aikido are you practing? Can you tell I don't get to interact with a lot of English speakers? :D

I'm at the other end of Shizuoka, actually quite far from Nagoya. I do Aikikai style and was lucky enough to train at Honbu for a number of years. My current teacher is Ishihara Katsuhiro Shihan, a 7th dan student of Osawa Kisaburo Shihan.
