Re: Angry white pyjamas (One year instructor programme in Lancaster, UK)

This sounds like a wonderful idea. I wish you every success in it!

At the risk of being pedantic, I would like to clarify that the Riot Police course in Japan featured in AWP is Yoshinkan-style Aikido. It is also a 9 month black belt program, with the full 11 month track granting an instructor certificate on top of that. While rank beginners are accepted to the program, some prior background in Yoshinkan-style Aikido is recommended.

These comments are not intended to detract for your program in anyway. It sounds like an amazing and rare opportunity for intense training outside of Japan!
