Is anyone here from Perth, Western Australia?
Hi everyone...Basically, I'm looking for a place to learn Aikido here in Perth, and was wondering if anyone here lives there and, if you do, where you train? I'm looking for somewhere either in, or preferably west of, the City centre. I know there's Jan De Jong's school in the city and they have a very good reputation, but unfortunately that's a bit expensive for me at the moment. I know there are some (hopefully good quality) schools around these parts, but Aikido is very different to other arts I've practised and I don't really know what to look for in regards to high quality schools. I currently practise a form of Kung Fu, and whilst the instruction is very good, it's too expensive and, the more I read about it, the more Aikido seems perfect for me.
Any advice that anyone has is welcome.
