Just to introduce myself, I've recently moved to Bristol (UK) and am trying to find one or two people here who might be interested in practising with me. I started off in Hakko-ryu aikijujitsu, but while in Japan for 2 years I joined Muden Juku, and this is what I'd like to focus on.
If you're interested have a look at this article and at the youtube link below:
Iida sensei was taught by Kodo Horikawa (and was a shihan in the Kodokai). He established Muden Juku in 2001, to focus on the aiki techniques as opposed to the jujutsu. There is a branch in Finland (we were to have a seminar this year but this had to be abandoned following the earthquake and tsunami). We're not really established in the UK yet - though I have a friend in Deal, Kent who runs a small dojo and is also training in this.
The training is great for all ages! Please do get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we'll try and set something up.
Looking forward to meeting some of you!
Best regards, Ed
