Hi Yukihide,

If you do find a dojo in Zimbabwe, please let me know! I don't seem to have any listed in the AikiWeb Dojo Search Engine.

Your profile shows you trained at Shounan Aikido Renmei -- this would be Takeda sensei's dojo? I've trained with him in the San Francisco area for the past four years. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make his gasshuku in Canada this year, though. Too bad; I love his aikido and his teachings...

Thank you for your reply. Though I have not yet got any information, I found Judo-dojo in this town. So at least there is a place can practice Aikido. Then, what next? .... I am wondering now.

Yes, I trained at Takeda sensei's dojo in Japan. Of course, I love his Aikido too. I was also invited to join his Canada gassyuku this summer, but it's too far from here.

If I will be able to start practicing Aikido here in any style, I will register the Dojo Search Engine.
Thank you again.

Maybe you can start your own dojo?

I was in Kamakura last August, but as I was coming back from a week in Thailand, I didn't have my dogi, hakama, or anything so I didn't stop by his dojo. Hopefully next time. (I'll have to continue working on my hara/neko ukemi, too!)

Please feel encouraged to do so. And, please feel welcome in sharing with us your aikido experiences over there in Zimbabwe.
