Well things have taken a real strange turn this week.
I was invited to "Knuckles" dojo for a free training session and a "How we do it here" lesson.
The place is in a gym just up the Kinker straat and is owned by a Japanese Karate guy. It is a gym,spa,sauna,karate dojo,kickboxing dojo,aikido dojo and has the greatest people who go there.
I arrived and was met by the owner who showed me around and gave me the rules,a locker and a cup of tea.He was a big guy with a "Don't fuck with me" attitude to which I complied as he was bigger then me.
"knuckles" arrived and we got changed and he showed me the dojo.
It was green! with brand new tatami and a huge mirror and a wall with mats on it.
The tatami was like butter and so soft,nice!
The lesson was quite large and with some regulars from my other dojo which was nice for "knuckles" as he could have a Uke he knows!
We did Sankajo and how you can apply it in all the different ways.
It was a nice lesson,nice people yet I don't know what to do as i want to keep going to my old dojo until that closes and moves and then go to "knuckles" dojo,but he only has one lesson a week....
