Dear Aikidoka's from all over the world,
First i want to tell you all, how happy i am to have found this AIKIWEB.
I want to give a short introduction of myself. I am from the Netherlands ( so forgive my english is al little bit poor), started with Aikido in 1980 and train under Shihan Tamura and Sugano untill 2000, from that time i am switched to train under the French Shihan Christian Tissier. The last few years i have been in Japan at the Hombu dojo to train under Doshu, and at Iwama with Isoyama Shihan. I am a fan of Shihan Seagal, and go to a seminar this weekend given by Larry Reynosa. From 1995 i have started my first dojo, and have now 5 dojo's with about 100 students. I am a member of the blackbelt exam commity at the Dutch Aikikai Foundation in Amsterdam. I run my own Bookshop (Franchise), and live in Breda (between Amsterdam and Antwerp, Belgium)
Thank you for reading, and maybe we meet sometime,
best regards Albert Stevense
