Re: Any fellow Scots Aikidoka out there?

I'm Scottish by ancestory, but not nationality. I wish I lived in Oban or Kilmartin though. Pretty much anywhere around Loch Lomond would be nice. Want to trade identities?

Thumbs down Re: Any fellow Scots Aikidoka out there?

No thanks! I'm trying to get out of Glasgow - I hate the city now. Oban was one of the places I thought about moving to. Loch Lomond's nice, although it's become a bit busier of late.

Ideally, I need a mountainous location, away from traffic, bad air, bad people!, and the general pace of city life.

I guess, since leaving a life working in the music business due to the stress of it all, I just want to be away from people and try and centre myself. It may sound idealistic but I feel drawn to the Highlands. I love it up there. There isn't a feeling in the world that comes close to the sense of perspective you get after an 8 hour climb to the top of a Munro. When you just stand there and look around, it's simply breathtaking!

Thanks for the reply,
Iain.

Re: Any fellow Scots Aikidoka out there?

I have Scottish ancestry too, but I'm not from Scotland, tho I would LOVE to go there and visit. It's a beautiful country, with beautiful people I'm sure. My Grandfather was a Scott...

Re: Any fellow Scots Aikidoka out there?

I'm soon to start training at the Aikikai-Aikido club in Yorkhill after years of "informal training". That's already been mentioned many times on this site.

If you read my posts you'll get an idea where I'm coming from (and where I'm going!)

Cheers,
Iain.

Re: Any fellow Scots Aikidoka out there?

Yup, one from up north in Aberdeen. Well, that's not strictly true since i've got to travel 60 miles to practice twice a week - but what could be more worth while?

It's true, there's really not a lot of Scots posting.. but not that many of us do aikido when you think about the number of Karate of Taekwondo clubs going about.

Hehe, and we're more prone to the "Fit di yi want tae dee aikwida for min, that disnae work richt in a fecht!" (apologies to those who don't get the doric dialect ). So I suppose theres a reason why there's not so many of us posting

Cool thread, thanks Iain
