I might be spending 2 weeks in Sonderhausen Germany.
Any Aikidoka within striking distance?

You know I have no idea. http://www.sondershausen.de/

My daughter will be doing a Master's class in violin there for two weeks middle of June.

I will bring dogi and make a few excursions.

Peter,

Don't know the access to Dortmund from Sonderhausen, but Easyjet do cheap flights to Luton (20 mins from me) if booked in advance.

Looking forward to 8th next month, see you in Himeji.

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

Re: Sonderhausen, Germany

Hmm. Yahoo.de's routeplanner says Sonderhausen is about 268 km from us, about a 3 hr drive. Look slike it's a little north of Erfurt. We're East-southeast of Bayreuth,

When will you be there? We haven't really traipsed around that part of the country much.

Michael, aren't you a student of Andy's? We may have met at some point. It's been way too long since Em and I got over to Freiburg to visit.

Re: Sonderhausen, Germany

Hi Peter, hi Chuck,

I checked but Sondershausen is almost 500 km from where I live (Augsburg). If you are willing a this long journey, you are invited to train with us. If you decide to go to Chuck and Emmily and they allow, I'll try to join you there. Otherwise I hope you still plan to visit later this year...

Chuck, we met through Andy last year in Munich. I hope it's possible to visit your dojo should I be up there... As far as I know, Michael is a student of Andy.

Simone

Re: Sonderhausen, Germany

Unfortunately Sondershausen is not next to Frankfurt/main either (some 250 km). but if there is a chance you touch Frankfurt, when coming or leaving Germany, tell me and I will get something arranged. Although I do not anyone here, who is doing Shodokan Aikido, we'ld have a wonderful training and/or discussion session.

Re: Sonderhausen, Germany

I don't care about the style - travel is always a chance to step outside of normal training.

June 7-21 - basically I will try to rent a small guest house for the two weeks.

At the moment we will be flying in and out of Frankfurt - at least that's the plan.

Heya Simone. Yeah, that was fun. Emily has a Rolfing colleague in Augsburg, I think. Might be a good excuse to wander over there, do some budo, let Em talk Rolfing shop. I haven't visited Augsburg since, geez, 1986 or 87 ...

Re: Sonderhausen, Germany

Peter,
unfortunately our dojo has no aikido classes on Fridays and no space in our time schedule for extra class. Honestly i am not sure, if they were really willing to arrange something, while you are welcome, whenever you want to attend regular classes.

There is another dojo (aikikai), which I visit sometimes. They have iaido classes Ffriday evening and aikido classes Saturday morning (http:www.aikido-hoechst.de). When you have exact time schedule I can ask them - I have to ask as I am only a guest there -.

At least my offer(bid?) for a lunch, dinner, drink is always valid.


Regards Dirk

Sorry, Peter, I just checked again and found ou, that 7nd and 21st of June are Wednesdays. Did someone change the calendar?

On Wednesdays, we have regualar classes in Frankfurt from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and you are cordially invited, if it matches your schedule. I can pick you up at the airport, if you like or we could find another way to get you to the dojo.

Kind regards Dirk

Re: Sonderhausen, Germany

Dirk;

I'm in Sondershausen for two weeks - between 5th and 26th. I have to find out how far it is by train to Frankfurt but I would like to visit. If there is a reasonable hotel in the nearby - it would be perfect.
I'll send you a PM in the next few days.
