coming home

Hello and thank you for allowing me to join your wonderful site.

My name is Bernie, I'm from the UK near aylesbury, I'm hoping to return to Aikido after a long break. I've been out for about 10 yrs, due to work and injury.
I'm hoping to get advice on the best way to return, daft question i know !!!!! just turn up...
I left a 3rd dan, i was from independent background, although i was trained by an aikikai instructor, i graded by an independent instructors (instructor taught at the club)
i would like to get into the aikikai side of aikido if possible.

any advice on returning would be gratefully received

many thanks
Bernie

Hello,

I trained in the UK for ten years before coming to live here in 1980. This was well before your time, but I suggest you send me a private mail with some more details and I can perhaps give you more specific advice.

Best wishes,

P A Goldsbury

... and Antony Pinchbeck's dojo, also in Aylesbury. Not Aikikai affiliated, but Tony is a student of Seishiro Endo Sensei.
