I know Australia is really far from everything:)
But that's the rare opportunity to see and learn from the teacher of that level and we're really happy to host this seminar:)

new here

hello, all, new here...thought I'd like to pop in and say hello. I just started training in the local dojo, I worked a little with a friend earlier this year, enough to really turn me onto it. He got me past the initial rolls, and introduced me to a little shiho nage and ikkyo...but he has so much going on he really doesn't have time to train anyone. As much as I miss training with him, I find I really love the dojo, and my boys are training there as well, or at least the two bigger ones, so it kind of makes it a family thing. I'm sore, mat burned and deliriously happy...

Your rule to have

No personal insults. "Your dojo looks crappy/your sensei must be stupid/that's not how to do that" is not productive statement.

Hey... you Aikidoka might find this amusing. Because I had training yesterday and Aiki = t3h rawking-est. I've been out of training for ages and ages and it just feels so good to get back into the dojo again. Even if I have matching yonkyo-bruises on both my wrists now =P

Hey, I'm Crys. I'm looking to better myself and become stronger and more confident. I need someone to help, someone who has been studing the arts for a while who could assist me in my desire to learn. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If your a teacher in the Kentucky area and you want to help a girl out, respond. I'm a big girl, very big, and I need to do something now. Please Respond, or tell me to fuck off either way, replies are nice


Hi everyone. I am Kohai(soon to be senpai) David Cougle, a shodan in the Shindoryu Aikijutsu Association. Our dojo is in Hammond, Louisiana(1hr from new orleans) at southeastern university. Our teacher is Rokudan Eric Templet Shihan. This is the closest community I could find to what we do, so I thought I'd just say hi.
