Not at all - the Students' Union here in Southampton is (very charitably, I must say) trying to develop links with Portsmouth Uni, and so our sectretary is organising a visit. I had no idea of any dojos in Portsmouth apart from the Kenshinkai ones, so was doing a little info gathering. It seems the club at the Uni is run by Ken Burke, the son of Dennis Burke from the Yuishinkai.

This is my pet peeve, though (as you know, Daren!) - as I said, in the martial arts who your teachers are seems to me a pretty obvious piece of information, and when it is missing one does start to wonder why...

Fully understand Alex.

I don't know much about Tony...but we have shared a practice in the past and he certainly seems experienced enough to run a club as well as being a good bloke.

I'd agree its a fairly essential bit of info - no idea why the site is so sparse, but as I know the guy I thought I'd chip in.
