Dates and locations have now been confirmed:
Brighton, Ki Centre,
12 Queen Square (near station and centre of town), East Sussex.
Saturday 1st October 2005
Free (5 pound donation to dojo for those who wish).
2.00 - 4.00 - Multi style keiko.
5.00 - 6.30 - Applied-aiki presentations and discussions/ tea.
7.00 - Meal at a nearby restaurant then pub.
Sat/Sunday 8-9th October
Lunch times during the large Yamada Sensei course.
This will not be an official event as such, but just interested parties who are at the course chatting.
These two locations are also great towns for a visit, Brighton being 45 min from London Victoria, and Edinburgh not as far away as you might think!
I will also be at the UKA national course in the Midlands the following weekend if this is better for you.
If you think that aikido can be more than just wrist grabbing, and don't mind training with folks from other associations, then get in contact - on and off the mat!
