For the last few years in London I have been content to join an existing group which technically and personally suited me quite well. I took a few classes here and there but most noticeably a few Saturdays at the local BJJ club reminded me how different I did things back in the day. So one of the people who joined that class apparently felt the same way and funded a group that had its first session last Monday.
Let's see how it goes - 20 mats makes it nowhere near the size of the Himeji dojo and it will take some time to engineer the group. At least I have a reasonable mix of people including one massive judo guy.
Very cool, Peter! Glad to hear it! I thoroughly enjoyed my brief time training with you!
Also, and I know you already know this, but my terrible sense of humor requires I say it: it's not the size of the dojo, but how you use it.
