I was saddened to hear of the passing of Haydn Foster sensei, i was lucky enough to train on the 'Big 3' course in Lowestoft last year- where he taught.
My thoughts go out to his family,friends and students.

Last week in class, Sensei was talking about 'Ki', this is a subject my past instructors have either given a wide berth to or have taken particular care not to talk about.
Sensei was testing the extension of ki through the Jo, so this is something I will have to work on.
I'm also working on getting to grips with the terminology Sensei uses to describe footwork.
Of all the clubs/associations I've been a member of each have their own way of doing things....there are many paths up the same mountain.

Well i attended the class last night, the first time at my local dojo - and really enjoyed it.
Being without my car for a while and feeling the financial 'crunch' of these difficult times, i've had to make adjustments - and one of them was finding somewhere to train locally.

The Sensei there has a background of both Aikikai style and Ki style, so many of the terminology and techniques were slightly different to what i'm used to, but thats what learnings all about -trying new things and expanding our horizons.

My last blog entry, i was talking about to up my training and really preparing myself for Nidan with White Rose Aikikai,
Fate i guess had other ideas, as my gearbox has gone faulty, so i'm limited to public transport for at least 2 months while i save up for the repair and then my insurance.
The situation has forced me to take stock (as they say) and really look at the amount of miles and hours of travelling i do to attend my Aikido classes (approx 200 miles/week)
There is a dojo within 15mins walk, which i visited before, i actually went to train there, i wore my black belt (without thinking) and the Sensei was quite 'off' with me, he seemed to have a strange attitude - however beggars can't be choosers....and next Thurs i'll go and this time wear my old white belt, i'll let you know how it goes...
