Aikido Mondays

From now on, the Hartland Aikido Club will meet every Monday and Thursday, week in, week out. In the past we have swapped the first Monday of each month for a Tuesday due to the Bucks Cross hall being used for other events. No longer. From Monday 1st of September we shall practise every Monday without fail. This has the advantage of simplicity - you know that we'll be there every week on exactly the same days. Sadly it also means that Sensei Small's monthly weapons classes have to be cancelled for the time being as he cannot make it on a Monday. We'll try to arrange some more 'special' classes with Sensei Small soon. In the meantime, bear in mind that Sensei Small runs his own weapons-based classes every Wednesday in Bideford. So if you want to master Aikido weapons, that is the place to go!

Charity Aikido Event, North Devon, September 2014

If you are interested in Aikido and you can make it to Bideford, North Devon, this September (Saturday, the 20th), please come along and support the Aiki Peace Week Workshop in support of Macmillian Cancer Care. There will be four teachers (maybe more) and the topics taught will cover everything from ken and jo to knife defences and the application of yin and yang in Aikido and Daily Life. Everyone is welcome, no matter what style or school of Aikido you follow. The poster is shown below. For up to date information, be sure to visit Sensei Small's Bideford Aiki-jo site which carries all the latest details of this event.

Aikido, Aiki-Jo and Aiki-Peace

A reminder that there is no class this Monday (as it's the first Monday of the month), but once again we have a special Aiki-weapons workshop with Sensei Small at 7:30 on Tuesday (everyone welcome - please bring bokken and jo).

Also, Sensei Small's Bideford Aiki-jo web site now has some advance information on the special Aiki-Peace-Week event which takes place on the 20th of September. To keep up to date with this (and other) forthcoming events, be sure to visit Sensei Small's Events page.
