East African Aikido

I'm currently helping to start a dojo in Ethiopia.

Is anyone aware of any other dojos in East Africa? Maybe Kenya or Djibouti? Jun, are there any users registered to these countries?

Thanks in advance,

Mark

Re: East African Aikido

When I was in Nairobi 20 some years ago, two germans ran the Nairobi Judo Club, which mostly practiced shotokan karate, believe it or not. I can't remember their names, but if you get to Nairobi, you should be able to still find the club. They don't seem to have a web presence. I'm sure if there is any aikido around in EA, they would know where it was. They used to practice at a middle school just near the university.

Best,
Ron

Re: East African Aikido

Aikido Kenkyukai has (had) some folks training in Tanzania. I do not know the current status of this group, but here is a link: http://aikidokenkyukai.com/network.html

Best of luck.

Re: East African Aikido

Jun,

Is there a way of searching the 200+ pages members list without scrolling through all of them as this would take me about two days on Ethinet?

Thanks,
Mark
