Good Choice...(spoken from a completely unbiased position)

Let us know when you are coming and I'll make sure the border guards let you in to the country!

Re: Is it possible?

Guards?

It will probably be on the Saturday at first. I'm coming from Cardiff so don't want to be too late back on a Monday.

Where is it from the station? Is it in sight? I'm terrible with directions

Yes, really. I found that in the short bio of O-sensei at the beginning of "Budo" by M. Ueshiba, the bio is written by the second doshu, I think. BTW, I also started when I was 19. I told this to my sensei and he made fun of me for implying that I had some kind of link to O-sensei.

Peace,
Tom Newhall

Re: Is it possible?

23 is still very young, imo. If im not mistaken my sensei started in his late teens or early 20's. Hes now in his late 40's and just recieved his 4th dan.

Re: Is it possible?

After thinking about I agree early 20's is a good age. You're old enough to really appreciate what you're doing, but not old enough that your joints are unwilling. There's still the want to have started much younger to have that advantage, but I'd possibly have a different, and not so desirable outlook

Yes its in sight from the station!

Come out of Bristol Temple Meads walk down the ramp and its on the left.

It has temple gate dojo in 10 foot high letters on it plus about 20 8 foot tall pictures of aikido practice in all the top floor windows.

They look vaguely like the pics in "The Dynamic sphere"...only vaguely so no lawsuits for copyright breach!

Saturday class is a bit different to weeknight classes ...for starters the main dojo has about 4 kids and teenagers classes running so it can be a bit manic!
