We had an excellent course, attended by instructors from the West Midlands, Gloucester, Birmingham, Leominster as well as local Bloomsbury and UCLU Aikido instructors and members. Thank you to all who attended the course, especially those who traveled and to Sensei Mike Smith for his illuminating class, to James Kirkpatrick for taking the Warm Up and to Ara Schorscher-Petcu, Fr Tom Plant and Alex Ash for their clear and engaging teaching demonstrations.
More details on venue: The Upper Room is a church hall without a reception so the door onto the street is kept locked. To gain entry, please ring the doorbell which works on an entryphone system. We have to keep to the room booking times so we will not be able to get in 5 minutes before the hiring period and must depart 5 minutes after.
There are no mats, training is on a wooden floor. Facilities comprise separate female and male toilets and one accessible toilet and a tiny kitchen. There are no designated changing rooms.
The Upper Room is very close to Camden Tube Station (Northern Line) and a 25-30 minute walk from Euston or St Pancras main line stations.

It was a great course packed full of good things and various aspects of Aikido: the teachers’ course running parallel with pre-grading classes on Saturday morning; all coming together for Dan gradings in the afternoon and further classes on Saturday and Sunday with GSK Shidoin and Fukushidoin. Congratulations to Darren, Eric (of Gloucester Dojos) and Chris (of Kidderminster/West Heath Dojos) for doing so well at their grading examinations.
