Ironically, I've had enquiries from several people wanting to start or resume learning aikido during the past few months. Normally, I'd be delighted. In the present circumstances, however, I have to turn them away. Due to the ongoing pandemic there has been no aikido for most of this year and I honestly can't see any prospect or running an aikido class any time this year - or maybe next year? If I have any more news, I'll post it here. But sadly, the news at the moment is all negative.
