I'll be going on a business trip to Europe for 2 weeks, including stops in Basel (Switzerland), Paris and Mulhouse (France).
If you are or can get anywhere near Freiburg, Germany (far southeast corner of Germany near both France and Switzerland), contact Andy Wilby. He's a personal friend and a damn fine aikidoka.
I've trained with him at the club in Freiburg and he recently came to the States for my wedding and a seminar we held. We conned him into teaching a session at the sem and it was simply smashing.
Andy is a Yorkshireman who's been in Germany over a decade. Lovely man, great voice (he sang while he did dishes, imagine, Elvis in yorkshire accent!), great aikido.
He's a long-time student of the late Noquet, and currently affiliated, IIRC, with Emmerson.
His e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
