Koryu - Scotland/UK
 
Hi all

I currently live in China but will be planning to return to the UK, Edinburgh Scotland to be specific, at the end of August (Chinese judicial system allowing).

I currently train in taijiquan and have been for the last 6 years here. And have incorporated some other IP exercises into my training for the last 2 years.

However one of my problems with CMA is that the majority of CMA schools don't teach functional weapons. To wit i have become more and more interested in Koryu due to the weapons element.

Are there any good koryu in the UK and more specifically Scotland?

I know that in mainland Europe there are several schools of koryu is it possible to study koryu but only be able to see the teacher 3/4 times a year...money/family/work allowing?

regards
Allan
