hmmm...a tartan hakama sounds good. Unfortunately my clan never had a tartan as they were lowlanders...the civilised ones . We did however have a family crest which had a phoenix rising.

I'm barely scots now since it's been a couple of generations already since my great grandfather came down and settled here but I still bear the name and still practice aikido in Singapore where I grew up.

No tartan? Have a look here, then

Re: Scottish Aikidoka?

I'm of Scottish descent from both father's side (Murray) and mother's side (Scott) and proud of it.

Now, if I could just trace the lineage back to exactly where they came from. And I am planning on visiting one day, just won't make it this year. I'll keep some open times for visiting dojos when I do make it over there.

There is only one as far as I am aware but I'd be interested to know where your second one is.

Outer Hebrides

East Kilbride and Outer Hebrides

Also West Kilbride in Ayrshire used to be called just Kilbride, but changed to 'west' after 'east' became a new town iirc.

Re: Scottish Aikidoka?

I don't mean that 'bride' is the same, btw. I mean that there is an EK in the Outer Hebrides.

Perhaps it's in another dimension?

I still hope to connect with my kinspeople; any Calderwoods out there?

Thanks Rob, I see I have no further excuses for not making a tartan hakama

OK, if there is an EK in the Outer Hebrides, it'll be lucky to have a population of more than 100 Let's see who can find it on a map first!

Maybe a good idea to post a query on one of the Genealogy forums, they will hook you up with lots of family connections over here. Whether they turn out to be Aikidoka..............Good luck!
