Hello from Australia!

Hi all~

My name is Diana, and I'm from Melbourne, Australia. I'm ranked as a 5th kyu in Aikikai, and hope to go for my 4th kyu in July this year.

I started aikido about five years ago, and practiced for two years before getting married, and getting caught up in the general busy-ness of life. My husband (then-boyfriend) and I started aikido together, and we both made the decision to return to training at the beginning of this year. He's 4th kyu, going for 3rd kyu.

Onegai shimasu!
- Diana

Re: Hello from Australia!

Hi Diana,
Welcome to AikiWeb...

Do you train with John Watson and Michael Nagle in Caufield still?(its been a little while since I was out that way)

My wife and I are based in Bendigo and travel down when we can to Clifton Hill for training and to Glen Waverley on the odd occasion (I'm originally from Glen Waverley)...

Always good to hear when people get back to training... my wife has had the last 18 months off with the birth of our first son, but is looking to get back soon.

Hope to see you both on the mat sometime

Cheers,
Sean.

Re: Hello from Australia!

Hi Sean,

Yes, I indeedly do train with them I also train with Mark Matcott-sensei at Monash Clayton because it's close, and that's where my husband and I started aikido in the first place. We used to train at the Japan Seminar House (before it burnt down in ... 2005?), but haven't made our way out to Glen Waverley yet. We do some of the special training days at Clifton Hill too - most recently for Sugano-shihan's week there after Summer School.

Congratulations on your new son, and hope to see you and wife some time soon!

- Diana

Re: Hello from Australia!

Mark is excellent to train with, although I haven't seen him in ages!

We have a pretty regular turn-out in Bendigo nowadays with between 6-12 people per class three nights a week... its a great group of people but I still love getting to Melbourne when we can...
