Training in Melbourne

Hi everyone, Ive been training in Iwama Aikido for 10 years under Barry Knight and am now looking for a new dojo. I was wondering if anybody knows of any Japanese sensei's that train in Melbourne, experienced sensei's in Iwama ryu, or any people that are looking for a training partner. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot everyone.

Re: Training in Melbourne

After 10 years with Barry Knight I guess you probably pretty much know who's who in the Iwama zoo in Melbourne. Trained with a few and they were welcoming to an outsider, there are a few different connections to Iwama though, some are more convinced of their uniqueness than others
Possibly not what your after but its quite the smorgasbord of Aikido Ryu and Ryu-ha in Melbourne with lots of tasty treats if your itchy for variations on a theme.

I have trained under Steve Ng, a direct student of Barry Knight, and Sullivan Cotter, a direct student of Ethan Weisgard - I too share your opinion.
