England Dojo > Where do you train

Hi all

I would really like to come & watch another Aikido class. I think this would really give me an insight to how other dojo's train.. & could possibly benefit from it.

How many people are on this site from England, Lancashire.

Do you think this is a good idea..?

Cheers Steve

Re: England Dojo > Where do you train

Hi Stephen,

I'm in Milton Keynes, not really near Manchester, but our dojo is part of the Lancashire Aikikai. We have a number of dojo's in Lancs, here's the association website, feel free to contact any of them, you will be most welcome. If you go visit, tell them I sent you along .

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"

Re: England Dojo > Where do you train

Hi Steve,

I can recommend Dave Yates' dojo in Stretford (see http://www.manchesteraikido.com)

This is a traditional Aikido (Aikikai) dojo affiliated to the British Aikido Federation. Dave is a good guy.

The BAF is hosting its annual Summer School not too far from you in Chester starting on Saturday 30 July. I would definitely recommend that if you can get there. Details are at http://www.chesteraikido.fsnet.co.uk...ool/SShome.htm

Re: England Dojo > Where do you train

There's an excellent Shodokan instructor by the name of Steve Evans teaching in South Manchester (Moss Side), I'm sure you'll be made most welcome there.
Some details here.

In response to your first question. I'm from England, Lancashire.

In response to your second question, I've never had any problems being from England, Lancashire so I'd say that it wasn't a bad idea.

Did I get the wrong end of this?

Cheers,

Matt.

I've had the pleasure of training with Steve Evans and it was an enlightening experience. He's very good indeed. I would check him out, if only to see what Shodothugs gets to when they train.

The people who understand, understand prefectly.

Re: England Dojo > Where do you train

I second the sentiments of Alex. Dave Yates is an excellent instructor and well worth a visit if you are in the area.

If you fancy travelling a little further and going to Chester (only about 35 minutes away) there is an excellent club there. I am slightly biased as this is where I train but we would be more than happy for you to pay us a visit.

We are also the Club responsible for organising the BAF Summer School mentioned above.
