Hi everybody,

I'm from Gent, Belgium. My name is Frank. have been practicing martial arts for 30 years now. trained first for several years in a dojo where we practiced jujitsu, karate, aikido and judo and then changed over to an aikidodojo, did a bit of taichi along the way. In aikido practiced different styles. Began with pupils of Tamura sensei, later on met Hirokazu Kobayashi sensei and trained with his pupils, also met Saito sensei and trained with Iwamaryu people for a few years next to the other styles. For the moment practice only with pupils of Kobayashi sensei. have taught for about 20 years. Have taken a little vacation from teaching, concentrating on training, going to seminars, meeting other aikidokas in other countries. Work in a library.
